Gauge

In stitch pattern, 15 sts for 14 rows measures 4″

It’s important to keep your stitching tension loose for this project so that there is some stretch and it blocks out. I blocked it out lengthwise to smooth out and set the stitches. If you would like your project longer, simply add more rows (more yardage would be required).

Skill Level

This is an easy stitch pattern. Perhaps not a first time project, but definitely suitable for an advanced beginner.

Pattern Note

This project is called a “Fling” because it’s something that you can just fling on, pin at the shoulder and go. Please stay tuned for more Flings. So fun! This is my second Fling in this 2015 series. Please click on my free patterns to see more.

The multiple of this stitch pattern is “4+6”. Add or subtract any multiple of 4 to the initial stitch count to increase or decrease the width.

Finishing

Blocking is recommended for all natural fibers. For this wrap, I wet it in lukewarm water completely and squeezed out some of the water gently. I rolled it in a dry towel to remove as much excess water as possible. I placed the project on another dry towel and shaped it then allowed to dry.

With yarn needle, weave in loose ends carefully.
