"Claire" by Lynn Anne Banks @la.knits

Have you ever seen one strand of yarn and one row of knitting combine to make such a beautiful wrap?!?  We can't stop oohing and ahhing over Loops Trooper Mary's Claire wrap.  Light and airy--perfect for chilly movie theatres or lavish galas, the wrap instantly goes from casual to glamourous.

The wrap knits up quickly on US8 (5mm) needles.  You need just one skein of La Bien Aimée Mohair Silk to whip up yours (we used the colorway "Siena").  You'll want one in every color!

The pattern is available on Ravelry.
