Simple construction meets sophistication with the Victoria Threaded Wrap. This is a show stopper that even a new knitter could manage. Knit in stockinette with openings for the wrap to be threaded through, this design can be as fancy or as casual as you like, depending on your yarn choice and what you pair it with. It’s time to get knitting!
