A Cozy Wrap
Tested by Nina Hancock
Midlothian, Virginia

Two-way stretch knits are the perfect fabric for this knits-only, cape-shaped wrap. Sewing the three pattern pieces is, as our tester put it, "a piece of cake." Place the pattern on any grain that works best to showcase your fabric. The shape is an oval divided into nine, wedge-shaped pieces. The sleeves are inserted into the center to complete the style. The 3/8-inch seam allowances show, so for a clean finish, serging is recommended. Alternate seaming techniques - Hong Kong, flat-fell, bound, wrapped, faggoting, and butted seams - can also be used. Our tester recommends that beginner sewers add supplementary match points to the seams because of the tremendous stretch in the knit. Depending on the fabric, this wrap is perfect for casual and formal occasions.

(Sized S-4x for finished busts 40-59 in.)


Style Tip:
Add faux fur to the collar of this little sweater wrap for a glamorous winter look.
