Diagonal Garter Square Wrap


This timeless, versatile wrap is based on a style that was popular in the 1950s. Knit diagonally to its center, and then split in two, it is completely reversible, and can be worn in a variety of ways to suit your mood and personal style.

Even better, it can be knit in any yarn to any gauge – only the amount of yarn used will vary, depending on the yarn and gauge you choose. Our sample was knit in a DK weight, light mohair, long-printed yarn, on larger needles than recommended on the yarn’s ball band, to produce a light fabric with a soft drape.
