A Miracle – It Is Done!

This is what I have called the Endless Wrap. I started this in August last year as my vacation project. When I realized how much knitting I still had to do afterwards I set it aside for a while and worked on it only occasionally. I was very surprised that I had enough length when I draped it around my dress form the other day. At the end I did not measure it, but I know, that I did not knit it to the required length of about 2,60m.

Because I wanted flat seems, I whip-stitched the edges together without overlapping them. It was surprisingly easy to match up all the edges. I just draped the shawl in my lap, formed the knot and flipped it over. I sewed the ends together first and secured the middle of the back with a safety pin. Then I seemed the edges together starting in the middle of the back going forward.

When I started this project I did not expect much. The yarn I used is not as drapey as the one used in the book and I wondered how a large knot on my chest would look…

Surprisingly the wrap does look very nice. Wearing it makes you feel like somebody is giving you a hug and I really like how the lines flow. I is definitely an unusual piece.

    Oh my gosh! That is so beautiful, congrats on finishing it. 🙂 Looking at it, I don’t really understand how it does what it does, its sort of an optical illusion, which makes it all the more brilliant.

    Thank you! It is actually quite easy. First you knit a very loooong scarf. Imagine laying it down in a figure eight with the ends sewn together. Then stack the two loops on top of each other and sew them together at the edges. Voilà!
