This is a fun pattern to knit! 🧶 It will look gorgeous once it is blocked.

Next on the needles: I’m practicing YO (yarn over) with this drop-stitch scarf pattern. 🧶

Criminy and Crivens love it when I wind skeins of yarn into “cakes” with my swift. 😻🧶😻

Finished the triangle garter wrap! 🧶 I’m glad it’s done, but I’ll miss getting lost in the pattern’s cozy simplicity.

During my lunch break today, I passed the 75% mark on this triangle garter wrap. 🧶 Each side is now 39” long!
