Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Lace knitting

Pattern Description:

The Happy Wrap takes three different lace stitches, all based on a diamond motif, to create a flowing but nonrepetitive whole.

It is named for and inspired by my grandmother, Harriett. The smiles are for her joyous spirit; the diamonds for her brilliance; the hearts for her boundless love.

Also designed in partnership with Brooklyn Handspun, whose lovely hand-dyed yarn makes this a pleasure to knit AND wear.

Stitches used: Knit, Purl, Slip, K2tog, SSK, SK2P (slip, K2tog, pass slipped stitch over). Stitch instructions are charted and written out line-by-line, with a photo to show the stitch life-sized.

The edging is scalloped by dint of blocking, not special edge stitches.


25 stitches and 38 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch
