Aran Wrap

from Marilyn King-Black Water Abbey Yarns
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Aran Wrap
Aran Wrap

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Turn a cable, pick up stitches

Pattern Description:

This is a wonderful wrap to have handy as the weather cools off. The back and left front are knitted in stockinette while the right front features a cable pattern with lots of depth, knitted in a contrasting color. Wear as shown- or throw the cabled panel over your shoulder for an even more dramatic look. A great way to play with color- and a great gift idea. It knits up quickly and size and gauge aren't critical!

You'll need 4- 100 gr balls of Black Water Abbey Yarns worsted weight yarn for the back and left front and 2- 100 gr balls in a contrasting color for the cabled panel.

We used "Dark Slate" for the back and left front, and Mid-Charcoal for the right front.
