This wrap is the ultimate road warrior travel garment. Made specifically for wearing while traveling, it is easy to pack and can be worn around the shoulders or as a scarf. The warp-emphasis fabric decreases snagging, and the gray color scheme goes with everything.
Within the pattern, I offer a yarn substitution guide on how to select yarns for warp and weft to create wraps and scarves that work on a similar philosophy of closely sett warp and fine weft. This pattern is associated with the Yarnworker School Colorwork course and complements its content, although any weaver should be able to follow the pattern without registering for the course.
