I have been working on increases to release knitted broomstick lace from itís natural, scarf-like, rectangle shape so it could become a lot of other things. The problem with that is that broomstick lace doesnít behave like ordinary knitting because of the large row of loops so standard ratios of increases didnít yield a predictable shape.

Initially I wanted to create a triangle shawl, but it looked more like a carrot than anything youíd be able to drape over your shoulders.  The next iteration had a wider angle, but was creating too much fabric and arching at the center back.  I felt as if it would bunch up at wearers neck and look funny.

The roundness was intriguing to me though and I decided if I couldnít beat it, I would join it and this wrap was born. The best part is that I learned a lot about increasing with Knitted Broomstick lace and I hope it wonít take me as long to push out patterns with even more shaping.



You wonít believe how well this wrap stays on your shoulders. By adding increases in the style of a Raglan sweater, it hugs and wonít let go. I also think the Broomstick Lace gives this wrap great flexibility to be dressed up or down depending on your moods.

The pattern is available at Ravelry, but, as always, I have free copies for my pals here at Craftster, so don't hesitate ask.

Right now, the pattern is at http://karlierobinson.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/knittedbroomstickwrap.pdf but I'll be taking it down sometime on Sunday, July 22.  After that I'll send it via Ravelry with either your user name there or with your email address.

Great!  Whenever you get to it post pictures somewhere so I can see where your creativity took the pattern.  If you leave a comment on my blog when you do, I'll be sure not to miss it.

And don't wait until you have a finished object, because I act like a kid at Christmas once I know someone is working one of my patterns.  Or maybe it's more like a nervous mother... anyway, don't keep us in suspense forever.

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.
