Wrapped up in Some Cloudy Cotton

Inspired by a customer, this wrap came to be. They've been selling them in shops all over this country, for lotsa cash and we put our heads together and thought, "We could make that! Right?"

Of course we can.

Here it is.

A wrap made of superbly soft cotton, perfect for almost every season. I suppose it just depends on what you want to wear under it...

And the fun part?
The buttons.
I know that most knitters hate it when you FINALLY finish a project and the first thing that everyone comments on is the buttons, but in this case I feel it's alright.
The buttons are what makes it!
They are what set this stocking stitch rectangle apart from any other stocking stitch rectangle.
The buttons give you options, and I like options.

The yarn? Estelle's Cloud Cotton.
The needle? 5.5 mm.
The no-brainer factor? Oh! Entirely no brainer. You could do this while sleep walking.

Apologies that the model isn't a little more glam. She did the best that she could.

I'm surprised it's not PINK, but I love the style. How wide is it, and how long? I hope you have it on display at the store!

Love it! I love the colour, the style, and of course the buttons! How many skeins of the Cloud Cotton does it take? Now I am thinking I want to make it in my sleep walking as you made it sound so easy!
