Quadrangle Wrap - Felted Tweed and Kidsilk Haze Version

Quadrangle Wrap - Felted Tweed and Kidsilk Haze Version

"Easy wearability."

Do you remember ‘Janie’s Grandmother’s Quadrangle Wrap’, a shop favorite from years past? Inspired by the easy wearability of the original, we’ve re-visioned the wrap at a finer gauge, changed the direction of the knitting, dropped the back neckline to sit nicely on the shoulders, and finessed the front edges with small I-cord. Equally stylish with denim or a dress, on a beach walk or out to dinner, wear it a little differently every day!

This version is knit holding Rowan Felted Tweed and Rowan Kidsilk Haze together throughout. With the addition of tweedy flecks and a touch of alpaca and silk, this version has drape and softness to spare. Mohair fills in the spaces and adds that bit of halo that we love. With row after row of soothing garter stitch, this wrap is a pleasure to knit and to wear.

Wrap is constructed in two pieces that are joined with three needle bind off when finished.

CHOOSING A SIZE: We designed this wrap in three sizes so you can choose a size that is neither skimpy nor overwhelming. Unlike most garments, the fit has more to do with stature than bust size.

MEASURE YOURSELF: With arms outstretched, ask a friend to measure your wingspan from fingertip to fingertip.

CHOOSE A SIZE: Choose the square size that has the diagonal dimension closest to your wingspan. What if you find yourself between sizes? Here’s where your personal style comes in. If you prefer a more tailored look, choose the smaller size. If you prefer a more dramatic look, choose the larger size. Whatever you choose, this piece is so forgiving you really can’t go wrong!
