How would you wear this wrap? Each individual chain on the bold side is mesmerizing. The simple blocks on the other side are calming and just as captivating. The drape of this wrap is incredible so you can wear it either way and the other side will peak out as you walk.

Two strands of laceweight yarn are held together in a marl to create a fingering weight fabric. Many laceweight yarns are not suitable for this project; look for smooth yarns (no mohair or alpaca) with a good twist. Anzula Wash My Lace (kits available) is creates a squishy fabric and the twist on the yarn makes it a dream for Fission Knitting.

Needles: 3.5 mm/ US #4 circular 24 in/ 60 cm needles or longer
Gauge: 25 stitches and 48 rows to 4 in/ 10 cm in purlwise garter worked flat (every row is purled with both yarns held together)
Finished Size: 19 in/ 48 cm width; 66 in/ 168 cm length (adjustable)
Notions: 1 removable stitch marker, 4 stitch markers (any kind), cable needle, tapestry needle, yarn sock or bag large enough to hold 2 balls of yarn.
