Spice up any outfit with a side-dish of Italian-inspired color. The Contorno wrap uses three unique colorways of handpainted yarn to create instant drama and flair.

Worked in garter stitch stripes, the wrap begins with a dramatic ripple worked lengthwise. Then, short row shaping pulls it all together into a gentle, lengthwise curve with tapered ends.

In Italian, “Contorno” has two meanings. In cooking, it’s a dish to accompany the main course. But I find its second definition, contour, works just as perfectly.
