“THIS DESIGN was inspired by a holiday to Oxford,” says Caroline Bawn. “We visited Waddesdon Manor, a former home of the Rothschild family, and I was fascinated by the plants
growing in a lattice pattern on a wall; it formed the basis for my cable design. This wrap has buttons on one end, and down the edges at opposite ends, to enable it to be worn in different ways. It has garter stitch ends and borders, with the lattice panel worked in the middle.”

Blocked wrap measures approx. 22 x 61 inches
