Wrap #1

I did about 3" of this wrap in the Pakucho cotton. Beautiful! Unfortunately, it wasn't what I wanted at this time. I needed something that would use 4 skeins and knit up much quicker. But I didn't want to forget this pattern.

Cast on 80 stitches on 6.5mm needles loosely. Switching to 5.5mm needles, knit 2 rows. Start pattern.

Pattern as follows: K1, *YO, K2tog* repeat ** to end with KI. Repeat for all rows until shawl is the length you want or you run out of yarn.

This pattern makes a nice criss-cross pattern that twists to the side of the piece. It is absolutely reversible with both sides identical. Perfect for mobius cowl. This stitch pattern came from one of Barbara G. Walker's book.
