boxleaf wrap

another leafy wrap, this time in a rectangle shape—the better to bundle up against the occasional chilly spring day. david had his eye on this one for himself by the time our photoshoot was done.

shown above: petite size wrap in briar rose josephine, a deeply gorgeous coopworth/mohair blend, colorway, 104 (deep woodsy greens).

the unique copper and nickel pins that secure the wrap were created by romi; there are lots more in her shop—sh’d love for you to visit.

my very good friend chris, the artist/genius that is briar rose fibers generously provided the yarn for this project.
very many thanks to rachel who is traveling overseas but still making time to proofread and polish the patterns; thanks rachel!
and of course, to david, who stands in the rain taking endless photos so we can entertain ourselves. he deserves a cozy wrap.

  6. Kate (the enabler) says:

    Get thee away from me, talented temptress. I mean, really – how many stoles/shawls/ wraps/scarves do I need? (apparently, at least one more). It’s very very beautiful – I really liked the border on the triangular version. I think I might even like it even better on this version. Bravo.

  7. Patricia says:

    The last three pictures are so tender, loving, and the best. It’s a beautiful piece.

  15. Jeanette says:

    If David wants the wrap – he should model it too, don’t you think?

  16. Nicky says:

    Are ALL of those photos of the petite size wrap?! It seems so large!

    I have some lovely eggplanty yarn lying around, and now I know exactly what to do with it. Ohoho!

    I also wanted to thank you: I recently finished your Ice Fantasia shawl, my very first shot at a shawl, and it’s GORGEOUS. As an amateur, I really appreciate that you take the time to include both charts AND line-by-line breakdowns.

    Oh, it is just gorgeous! I’m thinking that it would be fun to do with some strategically placed beads. Congratulations Anne! Another triumph!

  21. Romi says:

    Lovely lovely. Green is my favorite. And I am honored to see my pins worn on your gorgeous wrap! Thank you. :)

    Lovely, Anne. I wish my man would look at a wrap and say “I’d like to wear that”!

  23. Julia says:

    LOVE!! That is a gorgeous color on you, and with the outfit it’s perfect!

  24. Joan says:

    Love the shawl and love the sweater underneath. Is that one of yours also? Joan

  25. Lynette says:

    I agree with Jeanette above. If David wants the wrap, I think we should get to see him model it!

  26. Theresa in Italy says:

    I think this is going to be one of those patterns that just takes off—everyone is going to want one. Brace yourself. (And David, you are so lucky!)

  27. Sarah R says:

    It never ceases to amaze me how transformative a good blocking is to lace. That wrap is gorgeous.

    The green of this shawl looks just lovely with your eyes! I’ve been trying to avoid coming to your blog because it causes panic. I want to make everything you show us but I’ve not finished a durned thing started lately. Startitis, ADHD, whatever you want to call it. I gots it. Bad.

  42. Laris says:

    Both great pattern and a beautiful yarn!
