Celestial Blue Wrap
This stunning knit wrap is a perfect spring or summer project.
We have never seen a knit wrap so perfect for spring. This Celestial Blue Wrap is not only a lovely subdued blue to match the growing Forget-Me-Nots, but it's lightweight enough to not overheat for those warmer, sunnier days. This long wrap can be folded twice for a more bunched look around the shoulders, or draped elegantly around the arms. Don't stuff it in the back of the closet once spring is over, because this wrap also makes an excellent scarf. Try pairing it with a totally black or gray outfit so the color can stand out.
