The D’Amour Wrap is perfect for the knitter interested in a stranding adventure. The entire wrap is mapped out in a series of detailed charts to navigate the journey. At first glance the chart appears symmetrical, but upon further exploration you’ll see that each side has its own variations, making it unique. Using the technique of locked floats makes both the front and back beautiful. Once the stranded portion is complete, an applied I-cord edge finishes the wrap.
Don’t let the large chart stop you from tackling this gorgeous piece! Remember what I said earlier about the difference between difficult and time consuming? Filled with geometric and stylistic designs, this wrap promises to be a showstopper.
