The Design

"A timeless tunic!"

Our Modern Wrapper blends cozy with chic, snuggly with sleek. Normally, we knit it up double stranded with lace-weight mohair. In this version, the mohair is already in Rowan Kid Classic and it creates a fabric with perfect weight, luxurious drape and delicious warmth. (And this version uses the same needle size and number of yards as the original!)

Just for grins, we tried seaming it up as a tunic. We smiled from ear to ear at the results! Our free adaptation shows you how.

Pick up the pattern above (if you don't already have it). We’ve selected our favorite, most flattering colors for this project.  (You can always choose from our full selection on the Rowan Kid Classic page.)
