Calla Lily Wrap

On Sale
Added to cart
Calla Lily is an elegant cabled wrap,  inspired by Art Deco fashion, which flourished in the 1930s and earlier.  In madcap comedies like Bringing Up Baby, elegant accessories reigned, whether the characters were larking it up on the golf course or traipsing around the countryside.  Wear it draped over one shoulder  Katharine Hepburn-style or clasped around the neck. 

 Skill level:  Intermediate.  This triangular wrap is knit flat, bottom-up and sideways, with increases worked along one edge only.  The cable is fun and interesting to work, and the rest of the wrap is worked in garter stitch.
