Bhakti means devotion. Also the name of a friend, who is very special to me.
This wrap follows a simple asymmetric construction with twisted rib stitches throughout the pattern. 1x1 rib is worked halfway through the wrap and then changes to 2x1 rib along with colour and textural patterns. While there are different stitch patterns used in the 6 sections, they are repetitive in nature throughout the section. Only the placements of the stitches vary so as to form the design shape or element in the pattern.
There are 3 colours used in the sample, feel free to use more or just work it in one colour - as a lovely tester said, “to show off the intricate stitches and changing patterns.
