Massey Wrap

And now for the fruits of that photoshoot at Wychwood Barns!

Massey Wrap


This lacy wrap in fingering weight yarn scrunches up as a scarf or expands to be a stole. Versatile and easy to wear, Massey is knit on the bias in an easy lace pattern that looks great on both sides! One side features a geometric diamond pattern while the reverse is a wide and lacy rib. The knit-as-you-go I-cord edges are neat and pretty – a perfectly lovely piece for spring layering.

The stitch pattern used in this piece was inspired by “Another Lacy Rib” from Lynne Barr’s mindbending book Reversible Knitting. Technical Editing by Jaya Purswani.

    Laura, this is gorgeous! I think the pattern will be amendable to all sorts of yarns, too. I’m also really excited that you used Reversible Knitting as your starting point – that book is genius. Pattern purchased, now I just need to find the time to knit it!

    I love how simple (maybe a better word would be elegant) it looks without looking boring.

    Sorry I missed you on Saturday. I was at the Barns twice that day – once for the farmer market and once to visit the playground with a friend and her 3 year-old boy.
    It is indeed a good place to hang out!
