The Everdine wrap, a warm and cozy knitted wrap pattern inspired by the style and fashion of the Victorian era. It’s worn vertically and buttoned across the left shoulder. The herringbone mid-section creates a dense, warm fabric. And, the cables and ruffles give it a very feminine, fashionable appearance.
Keya used Peruvian Bulky Highland wool (137 yards per skein) to make her sample. Her pattern includes instructions for a small wrap (6 skeins – ~ 822 yards), medium (7 skeins ~ 959 yards) and large (9 skeins ~ 1,233 yards). You’ll need bulky yarn and 9mm straight or circular needles or a combination that swatches to a gauge of 19 stitches and 15 rows of herringbone stitch pattern to produce a 4 inch square.
To complete this wrap, you’ll also need 2 stitch markers; a cable needle; three 1.5 inch (38mm) round buttons; one 1 inch (25.4mm) button or eye hook closure; thread to attach buttons and chalk or contrasting yarn for making the placement of the closures.
