Quadrangle Wrap Pattern
Quadrangle Wrap Pattern
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. Wear it a little differently every day!
Pattern includes a detailed tutorial on grafting in garter stitch for a seamless, invisible join.

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!
