Pattern Description:

This lovely rectangular shaped Aran wrap is worked sideways.

The 32 rows of the pattern are written out in full. As there is no shaping, the 32 rows are simply repeated to the required length.

My wrap is worked in 8ply yarn but this pattern would also suit thicker or thinner yarns. Please note that altering the yarn will alter the width. The length can easily be altered to suit you.
