That's a wrap

Or maybe a scarf. I'm really not quite sure, but what I do know is that I finished Saroyan:


Pattern: Saroyan
Yarn: Valley Yarns Stockbridge in soft grape, 2.75 skeins
Needles: size 8
Mods: zip, zero, zilch

This isn't exactly a summer knit, although I guess you could make the argument that leaves = summer. Worsted weight wool/alpaca blend does not. But I zipped through it so quickly, the heaviness wasn't really an issue. This is an easy knit, mostly stockinette, with the leaf edging to keep things interesting.


It's wide enough at its widest point to be more of a shoulder wrap, but also perfectly usable as a scarf.

I wouldn't necessarily recommend modeling it outside in 80-degree weather, but I'm so dedicated, I'm always willing to suffer for my art:
