Donna, a delightfully cushy wrap to keep the chill away.  Edged with a few rounds of reverse stockinette stitch, in an alternate color if you like, the overall fabric is worked in twisted rib – a 5 stitch repeat of knits, purls, and simple right twists.  Slight shaping at its upper edge hugs the shoulders creating a beautiful drape.  Dress it up or down, this multi-season piece is super stylish and versatile, completing any outfit.  Worked in the round without seaming or blocking, you’ll find Donna to be a perfectly cozy project to pick up at the end of a work day, or anytime – enjoy!
