Claro is a lovely mixture of easy stitch patterns, designed to be a great boredom buster for warm weather knitting. And of course, you can modify the design as you go, working more or fewer repeats of the stitch patterns you like most. Wear the finished wrap across your shoulders to display the patterns, or wrap it around like a scarf for great texture combinations.
