Basketweave Wrap Complete

As you can see, I went with the crocheted trim. Why? Lack of patience, that's why.

I couldn't get the applied I-cord instructions and I was too impatient to wait for help.

But I like it. (I would probably have liked the i-cord better, but, oh well.)

I made up the pattern and there are things I would do differently. I would make it a little longer and less wide. I felt like I had to cut the length short because if I had kept going, it would have looked more like a blanket! In blocking, I will try to stretch it out a little bit to achieve a longer, less wide appearance.

I am working on another really cute project but I can't show it here. It's a surprise!

I found this while surfing yesterday:

In the blog that I was looking at, it was done in navy blue and it was wrapped around a figure-form. It was gorgeous. I'm not crazy about the yarn in this version, but I love the design. I can see this in off-white wool. A definite future project. And I already have the yarn. Why can't I stop knitting wraps?

I really like that wrap! The colors go well together. I wish you didn't live 4 hours away so my anxiety level wasn't so high over this sweater I'm doing.
