Belinda’s Wrap Knitting Pattern
When I first made my new worsted spun yarn, I commissioned Belinda Harris Reid to design something with it. This wrap is her creation, designed exclusively for us. It only uses two skeins and the techniques used are making one stitch (by using the tip of left needle to pick-up the running thread between sts on left hand needle and right hand needle and knitting into the back of it) and p5tog.
