FREE drop stitch wrap pattern
I have not tested this pattern with anyone else but myself. I wrote this down as I went along, so there may or may not be mistakes. PLEASE let me know if you find any.
Big Needle Knit Wrap
#35 US knitting needles
3 strands of 4 MEDIUM: WORSTED-WEIGHT yarn
NOTE: You will be knitting with three strands of yarn held together throughout this pattern.
Holding 3 strands of yarn together, CO 12 stitches
K 4 rows (garter stitch)
ROW 1: Knit each stitch, wrapping the yarn around the needle twice instead of once when completing the stitch.
ROW 2: Knit each stitch, dropping the extra wrap off the needle as you complete each stitch.
Repeat rows 1-2 until you have the desired length for either a capelet (shown) or a long wrap.
K 4 rows (garter stitch). BO
Finishing: If you make a capelet, you will want to add a large button, for a closure. The size of the knitted stitches will act as an automatic button hole. Sew in any loose stands.
