Pattern Description:

Walkover (wawk-oh-ver): Noun; A walking or trotting over the course by a contestant who is the only starter; an unopposed or easy victory; any task easily done... such as the Walkover Wrap!

This simple, yet practical wrap makes beautiful yarn sing! Three buttons and one buttonhole give many wearing options. Have fun choosing the perfect big buttons to feature on your shawl, or omit the buttonhole all together and wear with your favorite shawl pin.

Walkover Wrap is an easy knit/ purl project for beginners. Stick with what you know or try something new! Instructions include resource web links for multiple cast-on options, two tidier buttonhole techniques and a stretchy bind off. This project is also ideal for the experienced knitter who wants a relaxing knit. This is "TV knitting" at it's best!
