Jane's favorite flowering tree inspired the Golden Blossoms multi-directional wrap but, in truth, she sees it as an ode to all blooming things. Knit on size US 13 (9mm) needles in a stash-busting mix of everything from cotton to silk (with all that lies between), this is the perfect project for a summer afternoon while nested deep in your own secret garden.
The triangle back grows easily with increased stitches at the beginning of every row while the two sides are knit separately length-wise. Another option shown in the Garden View version, is to knit the two front sides as part of the back thus avoiding sewing. Add a pointy end on one side or not and you’ve grown yourself an interesting but surprisingly easy alternative to a summer cardigan when all you need is a little shoulder shelter.
An added feature is a few rows of openwork through which thick ribbons are woven for a little extra eye appeal. ‘Strippon’ additions of silk ribbons streaming from the edges enhance the effect.
