“One size to flatter every body.”
The Modern Wrapper walks the line between cozy and chic, snuggly and sleek; an oversized piece designed with thoughtful details to fit well and stay on the shoulders in a softly draping fabric to flatter every body. Wear it around the house, or dress it up a little for town. We mixed a strand of tweedy wool or smooth alpaca-blend fingering-weight yarn with lace-weight mohair on nice big needles for luxurious drape and a quick knit. Customize the fit by adjusting sleeve length.
One size. Dimensions after blocking: Approx. 37” / 94 cm back width at underarm (74” / 188cm body circumference); 28” / 71cm length from top of shoulder to hem; 8” / 20cm sleeve length; 9½“ / 24cm cuff circumference.
Approx. 1350 yds / 1234m of an equivalent fingering-weight yarn and a lace-weight mohair yarn, held together (each!)
