Xanthe Wrap by Ambah O'Brien | Xanthe Wrap is an invitation to play. Choose a trio of colours to express your style, the variations are endless; stripe two neutrals and add a lace colour pop, or keep it neutral for a classic look. Use your wildest speckle yarn striped with a solid and coordinating lace colour for something as fun to knit as it is to wear. The stretches of garter stitch make this a perfect project for travel or mindless knitting while beautiful lace keeps it interesting. Xanthe is knit on the bias which results in a rhomboid shape; it is easy to wear and will fast become a wardrobe staple. Pattern includes fully written instructions accompanied by a chart for the lace section.
