Designed to use up to ten different colors—from a gradient set to a stash-inspired mix—Simplexity blends simple stitches and textures to really show off your chosen yarns. Most rows are simple enough to count as mindless knitting, and the unusual end-to-end bias construction results in long, trailing stripes. The finished wrap is both generous and light, so you can drape it artfully around your shoulders or wrap yourself up tight as desired.
The pattern includes notes for modifying both length and width. Instructions are both written and charted, and Simplexity has been tech edited and test knit, so you can cast on with confidence.
