Magical Thinking, from Casapinka, is meant to drape over shoulders to some degree but not necessarily envelope you like a poncho would. The pattern includes two sizes and is designed for a universal fit. You can wear it bunched up like a bandana cowl or longer like a poncho. It's top down and seamless, with a variety of stitches to keep it interesting. Designed for solids, speckles, variegated (or a combination of all three!), we used local dyer Old Rusted Chair Sock in three glorious colors: two tonal (Spiced & Ridin' the Storm Out) and one speckle (Road Tripping).

Mary from CrochetWorks is a moderately asymmetric wrap worked in three sections of lace. It grows lacier and more open as you progress through the sections. Mary begins at a point on the side with just four chain stitches and gradually increases in length and width. The last several rows of the pattern form a lacy edging along one side. For this sample, we chose one of our favorite local yarns: two skeins of Camellia Fiber Co. in Flax Fingering.
