River Inny Wrap
The inspiration for this wrap and its lace pattern came from the River Inny. It’s a small river that links up with the Tamar in North Cornwall and ran through the farm I grew up on. Shallow enough to walk through with welly boots in the summer and high enough to burst its banks into the surrounding fields in the winter. I had many an afternoon splashing around with our dogs. The wrap is a simple rectangle worked flat with a repeat pattern that diminishes as you go.
It is both charted and written in full.
