Enid's Wrap

There has been a lot of knitting going on whilst I was away, so I am slipping in an extra post this week to show you this fabulous wrap by Enid.
In autumn, Enid saw a wrap at a lovely clothes boutique in the Dandenongs. Feeling a little faint at the price, she sensibly decided, that although a luxury garment is worth a lot of money, knitting a luxury garment from wonderful yarns would be a more budget friendly wardrobe investment.

We worked out a pattern together. The wrap is made from two rectangles in a very wide rib pattern, using Jo Sharp kid comfort mohair and Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed knitted together as one yarn.

The fringe is made from the mohair alone.


Although this is an easy knit, it is large, and took Enid about 3 weeks of solid knitting time. Enid is modelling the wrap (do you notice the Knit4 jumper underneath - there will be a post about that later), but it is actually intended for her daughter (lucky daughter), who is taller.

There are 11 balls of mohair and about 9 balls of Aran Tweed in the wrap.
The pattern will be available in the shop soon.
I am hoping for some more photos of the wrap for the pattern sheet, but this wrap will be posted off to Melbourne soon. I am sure it will get plenty of wear.
