Castle Couture Wrap

My second Castle Couture project is the Essential Summer Wrap!

This garment is billed in the Castle Couture Catalogue as:

- structured yet lightweight; and

- a delight to wear on chill summer evenings.

It's scary (not just the image of this cat swathed in something it would be hard put to walk in, let alone leap over garden walls) but I have spent the last month or two swatching for this wrap. I have auditioned four different types yarn and a number of stitch techniques to achieve the effect that I want.

My ideas have evolved a lot since December - photos and further explanation to follow. Honest!
