Wrap Yourself in Luxurious Chenille

Wrap Yourself in Luxurious Chenille

What do you get when you find the most delicious, luxurious chenille yarn on clearance and the Star Stitch for the double-knit loom?  You get this pretty, lacy, unbelievably soft and surprisingly warm wrap.

 

And what’s more?  It’s so quick and easy to make!

 

As I cruised the aisles of my favorite yarn shop, I stopped at the clearance bin and found this beautiful chenille yarn.  Still pricey, I decided to throw caution to the wind (I just can’t resist beautiful yarn AND a sale) as I thought this yarn would make a beautiful wrap.

 

We all have our favorite loom, mine being the Knitting Board with the metal pins.  However, I wanted a more lacy look so chose the 28” Knitting Board with Plastic Pegs loom, (a plastic loom would work just as well), as I wanted the pins to be farther apart to create a more lacy look.  Here are the instructions to create this little wrap of luxury.
