This is a top down crescent shaped wrap. The body is worked almost entirely in garter st with some eyelets worked in main and contrast colours for effect. The wrap has a small lace section worked at the beginning and this lace pattern is again repeated at the border, along with a mesh texture at the wing tips.

The pictures show 2 samples made using the same pattern but with two different yarn weights. So one (grey and black) is lighter and smaller and can be worn as a scarf, the other is bigger and heavier and works well as a wrap or shawl.
