Knitting Reimagined
This sheer beauty is a breeze to make with two lush, easy-to-knit
rectangles and no additional shaping. Using sequined mohair yarn in a
soft lavender adds sparkle and glamour. Knit the edging at the same time,
then simply overlap the edgings and sew the rectangles together at the
shoulders, leaving a neck opening. The nature-inspired leaf and floral
embellishments are appliquéd onto the front lace panel. The rectangles
will drape gracefully over the shoulders and flatter all body types.

Reimagine it
This wrap can easily be turned into a shrug. Just sew the
two rectangles together down the shoulder seam to the
wrist, then sew two sleeve seams, leaving a center opening
of approximately 22" (56cm). Use any color you like,
or try the same idea with a different stitch pattern and
embellishment.
