I'm a math professor by trade, and (unsurprisingly) my designs are informed by mathematical concepts. I co-edited the books Making Mathematics with Needlework: Ten Papers and Ten Projects and Crafting by Concepts: Fiber Arts and Mathematics with my colleague and friend Carolyn Yackel. You can find out more than you ever wanted to know about me and my way-too-many interests (including my ex-cat, socially responsible investing, dance, feminist philosophy of science,...) at my website.View all patterns by designer (19) »
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).
