Short Description: Foggy Morning Wrap by Cocoknits. A few years ago, I got my hands on some hand-spun farm yarn made from 100% baby alpaca. It was chunky and soft and a complete one-off, so if I ran out, there was no more to purchase. It didn’t appear that I had enough for a sweater, but I wanted more than a scarf. So I thought about what I wanted in a wrap since I’m not a shawl knitter or wearer. It needed to stay on my shoulders, so it required some shaping. I didn’t want it so long in the back that I sat on it while working at my computer. I wanted it to work easily under a coat, so no sleeves. And lastly, I had to be able to work it not knowing how far I would get before I ran out of yarn.
