Wheaten

Description

A versatile rectangle to knit in two yarn weights (worsted or fingering) and five sizes (scarf/wrap/baby blanket/small throw/large throw). A rich brocade of twining lines creates a lush organic surface to showcase a soft airy yarn. The fabric translates beautifully in both jewel tones and pale shades from nature. Ribbed hems provide a classic, neat finish to the edges.  The smallest size is perfect for baby, while the larger sizes makes for wonderful home and wardrobe accessories.
