Hi there! As promised, we are here trying to catch up on the designs that were missing a proper introduction at our blog. The next one on the list is the Janis Wrap, a squishy garter and mesh wrap worked on the bias. This wrap is a very easy knit, worked flat, perfect for tv or vacation knitting.
Everytime I picked up this knit to work on it, the delicate shades of these soft yarns, it reminded me so much of a lazy summer afternoon I could almost hear Janis Joplin singing “summertime and the living is easy…”.
A little more information about it:
Approximately 200 cm (80 in) length x 45 cm (18 in) width.
Dimensions are easy to modify if desired.
YARDAGE Approximately 830 m (900 yd) of fingering weight yarn in 2 colors.
