Pattern: Ozark Ruffle Wrap


MATERIALS
2 Skeins Ozark Handspun yarn
2 skeins Kidlin yarn by Louet in worsted weight
1 pair size US 50 needles
1 pair size US 15 needles
1 pair size US 17 circular needles

DIRECTIONS
Using size 50 needles and Ozark yarn, cast on 1 st. Knit. Increase 1 in this st (2 sts). Increase 1 in both of those sts. Thereafter, increase one st in the first and last sts of each row until you run out of yarn. BO loosely. Stretch each side to loosen it up. Block out to the maximum size. Steam lightly.
Using size 15 needles and Kidlin yarn, pick up as many sts as possible along one side only. Switch to the circular #17 needles and increase 1 st in each st across the row. Do this for a total of three rows. BO loosely. Do the same for the remaining two sides. It will be tight but you will have enough room on the needles for the sts on the longest side. Weave together the ends at the three corners.

So flattering and easy to wear!

I love this wrap!

But...have a question about the Kidlin, is it lace-weight or worsted? (I carry both.)

Thanks!

I only see 2 long sides to this garment, ending at the points on each end. When the pattern says to pick up stitches to make the ruffled portion, it says there are more than 2 sides. I don't get it. Pls explain.
