WRAPPED IN BLISS is a stunning, long wrap combining sections of faggot lace and stockinette throughout. One of my knitting pals walked into our local knitting spot wearing a new sweater that made me do a double-take. We have a rule when at our knitting meet-ups that, when asked if we knitted a sweater we’re wearing, we can say “yes” under any circumstances, and it isn’t lying. Karen bought the sweater, and I liked the combination and placement of stitches so much, I decided to design a wrap that reflected its simple beauty and flow. It is an easy, relaxing wrap to knit, and it has lots of the delicious drape we all love. The wrap is, at once, lightweight and snuggly warm. And versatile? You bet! Your project can be worn as a shawl, tied or not, as a scarf, or it can be wrapped around the neck serving as a cowl. You will change up the design at will as you go, so your wrap will be one-of-a-kind. Because it is knit using complementary shades of Knit Picks Stroll Tonal fingering yarns, it is as soft to knit with as it is to wear. And it’s machine washable!
