Tender Leif Basketweave Wrap with Fringe Easy Knit FREE Pattern

Tender Leif Basketweave Wrap with Fringe Easy Knit FREE Pattern
By Kristin Omdahl

This wrap really accentuates the gorgeous thick/thin texutre of the organic cotton yarn in simple stitches. Alternating between stockinette and reverse stockinette squares for a simple and elegant basket weave is not only easy and relaxing to knit but makes a knockout wrap! Adding the twisted fringe adds a pop of rustic flair that melts my heart. It is SO SOFT and comforting against your skin - I could wear this every day. This is a unisex pattern - it is equally gorgeous on a woman as it is striking on a man. Perfect for a special gift!

Fringe: cut 112 pieces of yarn 14" long. Using 2 strands at a time, evenly attach fringe to narrow edges of wrap with a slip knot. You should have approx 28 fringes across each side (4 fringes per basketweave square).

WIth fringe twister, attach two strands of each fringe in each of 2 clamps. Twist 14 times. Remove fringe without letting the twist go, and tie all 4 strands of the fringe together in a knot, leaving as little of yarn left over as possible (approx 1/2"). The two sets of twists will twist on each other again for a doubled twist. Repeat for each 4-strand fringe. With sharp scissors trim the edges of each fringe. Add a few drops of fray check for the raw edges.

Thank you for choosing to knit and crochet Kristin Omdahl patterns!
I know that you have thousands of choices for buying yarn and body care products. I want you to know what makes MY products special, and feel good about shopping the Kristin Omdahl brand.
Kristin Omdahl products have a heart! That’s right, a portion of every sale supports the charity I established: Project Kristin Cares.
I am a survivor of domestic violence, a hugely hidden problem in our society. You, or someone you know, has been affected by it, or is still suffering now. Statistics show that 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 4 men have been victims of domestic violence during their lifetimes.
But because it is so rarely discussed, I always felt like I was alone. One of the worst parts for me was that feeling of loneliness and having a dirty secret that had to be hidden.
Through my charity, Project Kristin Cares, we can make a difference in the lives of people who have been affected by domestic violence. I want to share the message that victims are not at fault, not alone and should not be embarrassed to share their stories.
Kristin Omdahl products are beautiful, thoughtful and valuable. But even more importantly, every time you purchase a product from my company, a portion of the sale supports
Project Kristin Cares. Please help me knock out domestic violence, one sale at a time.
xoxo, Kristin
