A glorious pattern by Jane Thornley.
Actually, I am not sure if it is fair to call this a pattern. It is a recipe for a fantastic wrap -- with all sorts of wonderful choices opened up to the knitter for her (or his) personal creative expansion -- just so much fun and so rewarding.
Here is what Jane writes:
"Celebrate global culture with this Culture Fushion wrap knit in predominantly black, rust and neutrals, a color combination easy to match using any DK-weight yarn. Stitchery is simple garter, drop-stitch, seed, and yarnovers with i-cords added from which to dangle your personal collection of buttons and beads.
"The shape couldn’t be easier: three elongated points to flip down your back and over the shoulders. Make your points as long as you want or ease up on the drama by making them shorter to suit your tastes. Besides the beaded i-cords, larger beads give aplomb at both the central back point and at the ends of both left and right fronts. Try yours in a different color combo. How about beachy neutrals festooned with shells? What about a spicy salsa color mix dangling with Mexican charms? Or, think pinky creams mingling with the soft glimmer of freshwater pearls. If you can dream it, you can knit it!"
We offer here a printed version of the pattern. If you prefer a PDF file, Jane offers that on her website.
This one is such fun!
