Eggnog Stole

This merino wool wrap is for cuddling up on cold days. Garter stitch borders the textured parallelogram section in the middle, which in certain lighting looks like chevrons running up the length of the wrap. The majority of stitches in this shawl are knits making it work up very quickly, but the I-Cord edge and textured section in the middle are complicated enough to keep you interested.
