Hextile Wrap

A dramatic yet light wrap for transitional seasons, the Hextile Wrap is knit on the bias for maximum drape and length. Its unfussy stitch patterns are a perfect vehicle for showing off your favourite fingering weight yarn (you will only need two precious skeins)! The stitch pattern is intuitive to knit and easy to memorise, with triangular lace ‘tiles’ nesting together to form a pattern of hexagons on the garter stitch background.
