New Buffalo uses five colors in broad stripes to create an airy, light weight wrap.
Worked in Stockinette stitch, the construction is simple: beginning at one tip, the increase section is worked first, then the decrease section is worked to the other tip.
We've chosen bold colors with high contrast: Fawn, Chicory, Ironweed, Trillium and Angelica. A range of our greys or browns would be equally lovely.
The instructions are written.
