ポコポコ (Japanese) – holey, full or holes or dents

This wrap is a distant cousin of Moko-Moko cowl design of mine, except this one was born out of experimenting combining modular knitting with dropped stitches. Ultimately a rectanglular shape, but due to the biasing nature of the stitch pattern this wrap turns into a parallelogram. This is beginner level project and is quite easy to knit and to meditate as you drop certain stitches at the end, but the texture on the finished wrap will surely captivate the gaze of many!
