....that's the number of cast on stitches for this Koigu Ruffled Neck Wrap, now that's like a serious, no non-sense cast on! The fun didn't stop there as there was also a 972 bind off. In between the stockinette ruffles are the 28 rows of seed stitches.This is a hearty, delightful neck wrap that could not disappoint any knitter. Hopefully we will see one more day of temperatures in the 50s so I can profile it before the full fledged beginning of summer. My Koigu purchase was made while on a day trip with BFF (Laurie) to this beautiful yarn shop. The designer of this knit works at the shop and happened to be wearing her wrap the day of our visit. I knew immediately I had to have one and was then faced with the almost impossible task of selecting a favorite colorway....I mean, they are all so b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l!!! I think everything about my wrap is to be loved and many of my knitting buddies are wanting a wrap of their own.
