Missing Lisa is worked with Marina (lace weight merino) and Cabrito (lace weight mohair) held together. The wrap is knit on the bias beginning and ending with corner triangles. Working the wrap on the bias keeps the stockinette from rolling.
I add a bit of fun to the pattern by utilizing Navajo or Chain knitting to insert 3 ply sections without having to weave in additional ends. There are YouTube videos on this technique if you want more instruction than my pattern offers.
The pattern encourages you to wing it or have fun with adding the little details - it made the knitting go really fast!
The yarn uses a good 750 to 800 yards of each yarn. If you avoid the Navajo plying you can get away with only 3 Cabrito.
Because the wrap uses Mohair, it is worked on a size US 10 needle. If you use two lace weight yarns without one being mohair you might choose to go down to a size 8 needle and you will need more yarn.
