Anthropologie Inspired Wrap



Anthropologie Abundant Wrap


I was recently perusing the Anthropologie website just for fun, and came across this wrap. I thought it would be great for fall. As I looked more closely, it seemed like easy enough construction to make. I played around a little with some yarn and came up with my design, inspired by the original.

Anthropologie Inspired Wrap
Yarn: Cascade 220, (100% Peruvian Highland Wool, 220 yds/sk), 3 skeins
Needles: US 8, 14" straight needles and US 8, 20" circular needle
Tapestry Needle
12, 1-1/4" buttons




The pattern is in pdf format on my side bar, if you'd like to make one!

Amazing! I actually bought this wrap from Anthro and thought - I bet this couldn't be too hard to knit. I didn't have confidence in my ability to figure out how to do this one, but yours looks fantastic! I may need to try this after all.
