Dovetail Wrap. Of all the ways to add stitches in knitting, I favor the quiet beauty of yarn overs.

Dovetail Wrap

Like a woodworker’s dovetail joint, yarn overs are elegant engineering. They make their presence known with a whisper, not a shout, yet,surely yarn overs deserve resounding acclaim for all they do for our craft! The yarn over is not only the Dovetail Wrap’s only design element, it also carries the entire structural burden! You’ll be amazed that strategically placed yarn overs are all you need to create a triangle. Yarn overs at the edges of the wrap wing off into garter stitch ridges that seamlessly miter at the center spine. PS- To see an Instagram photo of this project being worn click here! Materials 5 skeins of Purl Soho’s Super Soft Merino, 100% merino wool. Gauge 10 stitches = 4 inches in garter stitch Size Pattern Cast on 8 stitches, leaving a tail at least 10 inches long.

Using just one color of cording, you work up the diamond pattern, then flip it over to reveal a swirly pattern that intriguingly looks more like beading than macramé. Who knew that the “wrong side” of a friendship bracelet contained such beauty? To make your own just follow the instructions for the Diamond Bracelet in our Classic Friendship Bracelet Kit or Pattern, using the same color for each strand.

(Please see the Notes below for some helpful technical tips!) While this isn’t a beginner project, it is a fun challenge, kind of like a difficult sodoku or an all-black puzzle. Canettes.
