Day 22 in the Knit You Advent Calendar 2014: Halfway Wrap

There are only a few more days left in the calendar and that's hard to believe! If December is always moving quickly, this year it seems to have gone by faster I can even realize. I've had a wonderful time so far - and I still have a few surprises under my sleeve for you! 

Today it's time for a wonderful simple wrap - including everything I really love: garter stitch, stripes and short rows. Thank you, Jonna, for these beautiful photos!

Halfway Wrap

This wonderfully simple rectangular wrap is striped with halfway stripes from one side using short rows and spiced up with two intarsia stripes. First the stripes are irregular, but soon they will settle in even pace.

Yarn: 3 skeins of Caper Sock by String Theory

Needles: US 4 [3.5 mm]

Finished measurements: 68" [172 cm] long and 15" [38 cm] deep, after blocking.

This has been truly enjoyable; thank you Veera for putting all of this together. It has made my Christmas! I can't wait to cast on one of these patterns. Have a very Merry Christmas!!!
