from sarah-marie's knitting patterns
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Wrap-Scarf-Stole-Shrug

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • half-twist loop cast on, knit, purl, yarnover, k2tog, ssk, twisted stitch (ktbl), p2tog, ssp, symmetric 3-to-1 decrease (slip, ssk or k2tog, psso), bind off loosely, whipstitch.

Pattern Description:

This pattern makes a... uh... wrap? scarf? stole? shrug? Your result can be any of these garments, or you can add light buttons to make it a convertible wrap-scarf-stole-shrug. It was originally designed as a shrug, but then seemed to make an excellent scarf... and wrap... and stole. (My mom, who is shown in the photos, wanted all possibilities.) The rectangular lace pattern naturally folds at the 1/4 and 3/4 widths to make the sleeves or to stay at scarf-width.

Any fiber or fiber blend should work well with this pattern; the thickness of the yarn will determine the size. To maintain the texture shown, block lightly (if at all).

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 57" long, but you can use more or less yarn to make a longer or shorter wrap-scarf-stole-shrug.


  • 300-350 yards of worsted-weight yarn (recommended: Mirasol Miski, Valley Yarns Sheffield)
  • US 10 1/2 needles (6.5 mm), one circular or two straight needles

You Will Also Need:

  • tapestry/yarn needle to weave in ends
