I based the wrap off a free Lions Brand Yarn pattern (check out their website...it's chock full of free patterns) but altered it a bit to look like a picture I saw in a magazine. This is a very easy knitting project, great for a beginner.
I used Lion Brand Homespun in 'Meadow'. I used 3 skeins yarn on 10.5 needles (but had a 4th skein on hand just in case!) Cast on 60 stitches and do the first inch in a garter stitch then knit the rest in a stockinette stitch until the piece is 59 inches long then knit the last inch in garter stitch. Knit two pockets in a garter stitch and sew on to the wrap. Voila! You are ready for romance...or non-fiction...or a mystery...or whatever makes you happy. And believe me, this wrap along with a rainy day and a good book, will make you very happy!
