What materials did you use? I made this wrap out of lace weight Kid Seta yarn which is 70% kid Mohair and 30% silk to give it that extra shine. It took 440 - 455 yards (402 - 416 m) Needle size: US 8 - 5.0 mm

What are you most proud of? I love how lacy and light it came out. It would make a wonderful wrap for cool spring and summer evenings. I also think it would make a wonderful wedding shawl (in white) or bridesmaid shawl for those sleeveless wedding outfits.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Nupps are not hard if the wraps are done loosely. I also learned to use a crochet hook to pull the working yarn through all of them. There are some wonderful U-tube videos on making nupps that can be helpful. I learned it from a book which is a little harder to follow sometimes. (At least for me.)
