Garter Mesh Wrap

This is a quick, simple, and elegant wrap. Great to wear if you need something for a dressy evening out, or just use it as a scarf alternative. Note that this wrap was made for a friend of mine who is relatively short (5′) and had a finished length of slightly over 5 feet. If you prefer longer wraps or are very tall, you may wish to add a fourth ball of yarn.
