The Guernsey Wrap incorporates stitch patterns common to traditional guernsey fisherman sweaters. These are combinations of knit and purl only and are shown on large, easy-to-read charts, so this shawl is accessible even to an adventurous beginner. Finished measurements are 16.5" x 77.25". The wrap can be hand washed and dried flat. Brooklyn Tweed has assigned this Jared Flood design a skill level rating of 2 out of 5.
The Guernsey Wrap uses Shelter made by Brooklyn Tweed. This is a worsted weight wool. It is a lofty, light yarn with a slight halo after washing that will give a wonderful warmth to this shawl.

- 32" circular needle or single point needles in US size 8 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
