This rectangular wrap is knit in horizontally striped two-colour brioche short rows (using a wrap-and-turn technique) with contrasting diagonal stripes. The edges have the full i-cord treatment, using an i-cord cast off on both short-sides and a striped i-cord selvedge on the long sides, for a clean finish. Each row is worked twice, first with Yarn A then with Yarn B (or CC). Wrap is shown using two alternating contrast colours, but between 1 and 6 contrast colours can be used.
