Pattern: Vigil Wrap

With its intricate patterns, this elegant and cosy wrap is perfect for draping around you on cool days. Its construction allows you to knit in the round while simultaneously creating the fringe - no need to cut loads of short lengths for the fringe or to secure any steeks after the knitting is finished. You simply cut the fringe stitches up the middle and then knot the strands to make the fringe look nice!
