Soft Shadows Wrap - Pattern Preview

 Today's preview is of the "Soft Shadows Wrap". This wrap takes on a striking appearance from the contrasting  color and texture of the yarns, as well as its rather unusual shape.
 Wide bands of fluffy yarn are alternated with a long color stripe yarn. Shaping is all done by increasing and decreasing. The yarns are carried along the edges, so there are not a lot of ends to weave in.
At about 100 inches long, the wrap can be worn many different ways, and is quite fun to play with. 
 Best of all, any gauge loom and yarn weight may be used. The pattern has variations for 3/4, 1/2, and 3/8 inch gauge looms. The sample shown is made with fingering weight yarn on a 1/2 inch gauge loom.
Loom Knit Shawls Vol. II is almost ready - just a few more days. In the mean time, I hope you are enjoying the previews, and please come back tomorrow for the next pattern.
