grottoVery pretty! This free wrap pattern from Knitting Daily and designed by Karen D. Kendrick-Hands could very well become a daily item in your wardrobe.

This garment is worked in two halves, each starting at the sleeve cuff and working toward the center of the body. Each sleeve is worked in the round to the armhole. Stitches for the sides of the back and front are added using a provisional cast-on, and the new cast-on stitches are gradually joined to the sleeve stitches using short-rows to create armhole shaping. The back and front are worked back and forth in rows in one piece until they are divided at the neck edge for working the front and back separately. The live stitches of each half at center back are grafted together.And, you can get the pattern, here:

    Well, shoot, they must have taken it down. I even tried googling it and didn’t come up with anything. Sorry about that!
