I think it is quite lovely, really.  How is the wrap-cozy to wear?

I like it as a cardigan, and belted as shown but in this fabric its slightly too heavy for a lot of the knotted versions. The cowl neck top version is OK, but anything where you have to do big knots its too bulky.

I am going to start the winter collection thread today.


Ooh goody I want a change from blue, but fancy a old gold crinkle blouse for Christmas. Can't decide between a wrap and a tie neck.
Will you link off this thread?
