Quadrangle Wrap - Lang Yara Version

Quadrangle Wrap - Lang Yara 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!

Our original shop version was knit in a bulky bouclé that we re-ordered for years just for this project, until the mill stopped production. This set us on a search for its replacement. We discovered Lang Yara, a bouclé-ish yarn that's oh-so-soft. A fluffy cotton/mohair/wool blend that's slightly crimped and twists around a nylon core. At a worsted weight gauge, it's warm and cozywe found our fiber for the Quadrangle Wrap!

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

Pick up the pattern below, and then choose your color of Lang Yara. See the Knitters' Notes tab for tips on choosing a size, and the Basic Details tab for the number of skeins you'll need for your size.

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!
