ILY, Logan

The Logan River Wrap was such an enjoyable project. Everything went smoothly, the pattern repeat was easy to memorize. I did have yardage issues, but the wrap gained length during the blocking process, which made up for that.


I made no modifications whatsoever. The pattern is well written and thought-out that any feature or technique that I might’ve wanted to change were already utilized or matched my preferences.


Nothing left for me to say, but love! Love the color! Love the cables! Love the mitered corners (they resemble the corners in Celtic knots)! Love the rivulets of drop stitches! Yum!


Would I make this again? Very possibly, with a heathered yarn and widening it ever so slightly with two extra columns of dropped stitches. I want to note that the color in the second picture above is way off. The purple is a wonderful so-dark-that-it’s-nearly-black purple, much like the picture below.


The wrap also works as a cowl and scarf combination. (My inspiration for this pose comes from Augustus, capite velato, or wearing his traditional veil during religious ceremony.*)

    Wowsa, that is very becoming on you. I love the deep, deep purple. It really does look so fluid.

    Harriet! That is stunning STUNNING STUNNING!!! You are making me want to have it now, wrapped around me. A wrap has been in the back of my mind for some time, and your lovely pictures are nudging it to the front!

    WowEEE! So beautiful! The yarn and pattern are a perfect fit – and an amazing color on you, if you’re indeed the model. Lovely, lovely work – I’m inspired!
