The Faraway Blues Wrap is the second piece in my Earth Collection. Made in Carol Sunday’s “Angelic 5-Ply” yarn, the Faraway Blues Wrap is light and lofty, yet wonderfully warm. It has the coziness of a blanket and the elegance of a formal stole. The lace instructions are both written and charted. The pattern has been professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error, but if you have questions or believe that you have found an error, please contact me.
The individual pattern is available for purchase in pdf format for $6.50.

Although exact gauge is not essential to the success of this project, deviation from gauge will affect the required yardage, so remember to adjust accordingly. If you are concerned about yardage, work fewer horizontal repeats as opposed to fewer vertical repeats. Working three and a half horizontal repeats will create a generous scarf.
Wrap is worked as a rectangle from end to end. Fringe is added after blocking.
