Cedar Wrap – Free Pattern!

December 4, 2010

Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

I have the pattern for the squishiest and warmest wrap for you today. Wearing the Cedar Wrap is like getting a hug. It sits beautifully on your shoulders without any fuss. I love the way the shawl collar just gently folds over when you put it around you and the buttons just pass through the fabric knitted on large needles without any set buttonholes. It couldn’t be more carefree.

The back is my favorite part though. The horizontal ripple stitch makes it look much harder than it is. The ripple stitch pattern is a two row repeat with the second row being knit only. After a couple of times through you will easily have it memorized and working on the big needles makes this project fly off your needles. It’s fun, fast and mindless knitting.

Here is some information you might like to know:
