A Child's Version of the Tendril Wrap


Now that it is cold enough in Kuwait to wear shawls and wraps, I have been getting the chance to wear the Tendril Wrap I made for myself out of camel's hair yarn.  (By the way, in case you are wondering, camels hair yarn is surprisingly soft)!  My daughter had been admiring the wrap, and asked me if I could make her one.  I remembered that I had the sample I sent to Interweave, when I made the change in how it was constructed.  It is only 3 repeats of the pattern, and I was hoping it was enough to go around her.  I knew she wouldn't deal well with a loose wrap, so I stitched a vintage button from my button collection on one of the top corners.  Conveniently, on the other side was a loop that fit it perfectly.  When we finally had it buttoned on her, I was amazed that it looked as if I had made it especially for her.  It was wonderful to be able to please my daughter, and recycle a swatch at the same time.  Now we wear our wraps together whenever we get the chance!
