Sivia Hardings' unusually shaped wrap Inkberry
utilizes Sivia's favorite center back panel treatment, this time with
wide, half-circular side panels. The overall effect is of wings which are
anchored beautifully by the intricate leafy cables at the back.
Interestingly, the combination of shaping techniques produces a wrap that
will stay put where it is supposed to, and feels wonderfully generous to
wear. Inkberry is knit in 2 skeins of Schaefer's merino wool and silk blend Audrey.
Subtly textured in reverse stockinette stitch with beaded
accents and with a minimalist feel, this wrap is warm and light as air.
The beads, which are placed with the crochet hook method, add weight where
it is needed and reveal glints of treasure hidden in the leaves which circle
the bottom edge.
