This wrap is made in 4 pieces.
First you will make the two long pieces which are joined to make the main body of the wrap, then the lacy chevrons are added to finish the piece.

Sowing Seeds of Love is the name of a wonderful song by Tears for Fears.
The more I worked on this wrap, the more it made me think of green and golden fields. Neat and geometric. I asked myself ‘what would I sow in them?’
And then I just couldn’t think of any other name for this wrap.
Sorry for the ear worm!

Approx. 84” 210 cm long and 26¾“ 67 cm wide (after blocking).
