Winter Solstice Wrap

I will admit to having a weakness for shawls and have knitted a plethora of them. I wanted to design one that wore shorter so I wouldn't worry about keeping the ends out of things when I bent over. I decided to go with the wrap style that covers the shoulders. The cowl neck line makes putting it on easy - it's wide enough to avoid hair and makeup. It is shown with the seam in the front for a multidirectional effect. It is also beautiful with the seam in back. When joining, I joined on the reverse side and repeated this step on the front side so the joint was flat. This worked perfectly. It is warm, comfortable, gorgeous and trouble-free.

Skill: Intermediate

Size: before sewing, at 14" wide, it's 45" long.
