Ilga Leja is one of our favorite designers and when she puts out a new pattern collection, we run to get them all.
This one is called On the Town and is a very simple knit which creates a delightful small shoulder wrap.
To quote Ilga:
"The days may be drawing in. But there is no reason that you can’t still display some colour and zest, when you are going out “on the town”.
"This neck and shoulder wrap is ideal for those days—and nights—that are getting just a little cooler. Worked in the round in a Garter Stitch Rib pattern, this jaunty cowl makes use of bobbles along the edges. Together with the unpredictability of a handpainted yarn, they make this a one-of-a-kind piece."
Size: One size fits most.
Circumference around neck: 53 cm./21 in.
Circumference around shoulders: 132 cm./52 in.
Total length (excluding bobbles): 30 cm./12 in.
Suggested Yarn: 300 m./328 yds. of sport weight yarn
Needles: 3.5 mm. (US 4) circular needle, 60 cm./24 in long
Gauge: 20 sts and 38 rnds = 10 cm./4 in. square when worked in the pattern stitch
A great knit for snuggling with.
