There’s something special about knitted rectangular wraps.  Long and lightweight, you can wear them with almost anything, choosing to let them drape over your shoulders for a bit of visual interest or wrap around your neck and shoulders for when the weather turns cooler. And their brilliance doesn’t end there. Most of the time, gauge doesn’t matter. If you find a fingering weight pattern, you can use sport weight yarn if you prefer. Make it more or less wide or make it shorter or longer. It’s easy to customize a wrap to make it the perfect accessory for your wardrobe.

Today, discover these four knitted rectangular wraps that have been recently released on Ravelry:

Casement Wrap by Karalee Harding

This lightweight, rectangular wrap is what sequence knitting dreams are made of. Columns of chevron eyelets and texture run the length of the wrap giving it a modern, yet timeless look. A four-row repeat makes this wrap a great one to pick up and knit in between project or when you need a meditative knit.

Schnee by Melanie Berg

Knit with alternating stripes of different fiber lace weight yarn, this long, featherweight wrap is equal parts beautiful and cozy. Work in two halves – each individually knit on the bias – and join together with a 3-needle-bind-off.
