This fun-to knit, multi-sized rectangle can be worked in two yarn weights (fingering or DK/light worsted) and five sizes (petite wrap/tall wrap/baby blanket/small throw/large throw) for a cozy extra layer on chilly days. Natural yarn colors enhance the fabric texture and play well with a variety of clothing; richly-dyed colorways will dramatize the openwork and geometry. This easy-to-work project speeds right along, making for a great beginner or travel piece.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
