On the Rails is an enveloping wrap that is the perfect accessory to take the edge off a cool summer breeze! The original pattern is knit with a DK linen-silk blend, however with a 24 st gauge, we can also imagine it in your favorite “wintery” fingering weight yarn! On the Rails begins with an 8” 2×1 rib pattern, and as the wrap increases in length and width, the ribbing steps down and flows into a simple stockinette fabric. This lovely wrap takes its name from my love of travel and the sensation I felt as I knit – that of being on a long exciting train journey towards a mysterious unknown destination.
