Wrap is a modern term that encompasses articles of fabric that wrap around the upper body, such as shawls, scarves, and stoles. As a fashion statement or to warm yourself up, wraps are wonderful no matter what you call them.
When light and lacy, they are perfect for those days in spring and fall when it’s not quite cold enough for a sweater but still a bit nippy outside. When thick and soft, they’re perfect for lessening the bite of winter.
Most wraps are large and often take more than one skein of yarn. In this round up, these patterns will average only one skein (or more, depending on the yarn you are using and the size you want).
As all patterns are dependent on the maker and all yarns are dependent on the brand, you may end up needing to use more than one skein to fit your fancy.
