Phobos begins with a square worked in the round from the centre out, using a nifty cast-on method. This square is turned 45 degrees and a triangle is worked from each of two of the sides to square off one end of the wrap. The stitches from the other two sides are then returned to the needles and a long, chevron patterned section is worked to form the main body of the wrap. A small triangle is worked separately to form the other end and the two points are connected with a triangle on either side. It all sounds rather confusing but it comes together easily with a minimum of picking up stitches and fussy acrobatics. The long sides are edged with I-cord that’s worked at the same time as the other pieces and the short ends are finished with a simple garter stitch border.
