Cloria is a greek name that means “goddess of spring”. This wrap has a unique shape that has a triangular shawl with a long tail – almost like a scarf attached to the side. You will have enough fabric to wrap over your shoulders and neck to keep you feeling like a goddess on those cool spring nights.
When trying to come up with a design, I knew I wanted something that screamed spring. I decided to use the Pantone color of the year “Greenery” as my starting point. As part of round 13 for the newest Battle of the Stitches challenge, we used the Slanted Puff stitch so I did the first section of the wrap with that as my main stitch, then I added a second section using an airy stitch combo so it wouldn’t get too heavy. The result is a beautiful wrap in the shape of a scalene triangle.
