I highly recommend Tahki’s Montana yarn or another Super Bulky, pencil-roving-type yarn. It creates a lofty, cozy, wrap that shows off the Chevron pattern nicely. The undyed wool in the sample keeps the focus on the stitch pattern.
Three kinds of i-cord? Did you think there was only the one? In addition to “traditional” i-cord that makes a little cord, you will also learn how to add i-cord to vertical edges as you go and how to bind off in i-cord. When you finish and weave in those ends, you won’t be able to tell where the wrap begins or ends. And the fully reversible Chevron pattern means you get TWO right sides.
No beginning, no end, no wrong side - that’s a whole lot of perfect in one tidy package!
What you’ll love about knitting Ozark Wrap:
- Three kinds of i-cord! You’ll be adding i-cord to all your knits in the future
- Easy to remember Chevron pattern has a great rhythm and produces a sharp-looking wrap
- No finishing work - the i-cord makes for such a tidy finish. Weave in a few ends, and you’re ready to bundle up
- The squishy coziness
- Reversible: not just front and back but top to bottom
- Being wrapped up in a blanket yet out in the world - ‘cause we’ve got stuff to do
