Less Travelled Wrap
Less Travelled Wrap by Megan Nodecker
Less travelled is wide rectangular wrap. It uses twisted stitches on a reverse stockinette background to create a large chevron feature down the middle, and icord on all four of the edges make for a beautifully finished piece. You can easily modify this pattern to suit your specific needs. Want it longer? Add more pattern repeats. Like a more traditional, skinnier scarf? Cast on less stitches and work less of the seed stitch border. Knit with silky superwash merino yarn, with speckles the colours of dirt and sand, this wrap is your reminder to take the road less travelled.
