Inconceivable! Wrap

Wednesday, July 01, 2009

You keep using that wrap… I do not think it is what you think it is... Is this a wrap? A cowl? A capelet? A shrug? The options are numerous, the lace is good for beginners, and the results are fit for a princess or a bride. It’s Inconceivable!

Why else is this Inconceivable!?
  • It’s perfect for a pleasure cruise at night through eel (or shark) infested waters (or for curling up with a good book or movie)…
  • It looks good on both sides, which is inconceivable! in a wrap…
  • The wrap can be worn at least six different ways, depending on how you choose to lace it with ribbon through the border…
  • It is inspired by the embroidered pattern of Vizzini’s coat…
  • The original yarn is a golden green, also inspired by Vizzini’s coat…
  • TPB is my all time favorite movie, and I’ve been dreaming for years of designing a wrap fit for Buttercup…
  • And finally, you’ll keep using this wrap, even if it doesn’t mean what everyone else thinks it should mean!

Many thanks to pattern testers Carol (CarolSch), Dawn (DawningDreams), Evelyn (NanaRector), Jenessa (TheNoviceKnitter), and Sarah (AlaskanSass).

    It looks lovely...although, I'd probably go making it out of something heavier than lace weight as I'm not a shawl/cowl/wrap type of person. Then again, who says it has to be for me?

    Hmmmmm........something to consider.
