Wrap yourself up to keep cozy as we head into fall and winter. This wrap is a fantastic project for newer knitters, and a great introduction to charts and patterns since the pattern always builds on the rows beneath it in a predictable way. Featuring the Cascade Yarns Aereo in Provence (just like the Harvest Poncho pattern also in this issue), this is one of our favorites for the new season.

Row 20: Knit.
Rep Rows 1-20 for patt.
The chart only shows the odd numbered rows.
Every stitch of every even sided row is knit.
If you can’t remember which side of the work you’re looking at, pick it up as if you’re ready to knit. If the diagonal lines of eyelets are going in the same direction as the chart (up and to the right), your next row is an odd number. If they are going the opposite direction as the chart (up and to the left), your next row is an even number.
The written pattern and the chart say exactly the same thing in two different ways (one with abbreviations, the other graphically). Pick whichever works best for you.
Both the chart and written instructions are for a 20-row repeat! Do not forget to knit Row 20 before moving on to doing Row 1 again.
CO 52 sts.
Work patt either from the chart or written instructions, repeating the 20 rows until Scarf meas 72” long.
