Pattern Description:

I have seen a number of photo props (and even made and sold some myself) with mohair blends on large needles that are knit on every row. I love the way they look, and thought that some decorative stitching would add even more interest. I was unable to find such a pattern, so I made one...and here it is!

This delicate wrap is made with a silk and mohair blend. Wrap it around baby for photos (it is very stretchy), tucking the ends in. It gives a delicate, sheer appearance and because it is translucent, it doesn't take focus off of the baby.

Use yarn with a lot of halo for a glowing effect, or a minimal halo to optimize the definition of your subject. Try a lace weight yarn without a halo for a decorate effect with a clean, crisp look. Use a self-striping yarn with long color changes for a multi-colored starburst effect. The options are endless!

The pattern includes instructions for how to alter the finished size if you would like to make a larger wrap. It is an intermediate pattern, but the pattern repeats are easy to remember. Because it is knit on large needles, it is a quick knit.

You are encouraged to make and sell wraps to your heart's content.

Gauge is 10 stitches to every 4 inches, however, as it is knit on large needles and creates a very stretchy fabric, obtaining a specific gauge is not critical for this pattern.

  • Lace weight yarn, such as Rowan Kidsilk Haze, 200-400 yards
