Vigga Wrap (English)
INTRODUCTION (ENGLISH) Find den danske opskrift her
The Vigga Wrap is a combination of a scarf and a sweater. It is worked from one sleeve to the other in one long piece. The sleeves are ribbed, and the body is worked back and forth in garter stitch with a wavy pattern along the edges in both sides. The Vigga Wrap is very versatile and may be worn in many ways. On YouTube you can find introductory videos to guide you as to how to use a sweater scarf. Here are some examples.
The wavy pattern along the edges of the Vigga Wrap resembles the pattern of the Vigga Scarf. On YouTube you can find a video that introduces you to the method. The video was originally made for the Vigga Scarf, so the increases are different from this pattern. Still, the video can show you how to work the wavy pattern.
