Notes From the Designer:

Shifting Sands was designed to be a lovely, flowing wrap to wear on all your beachy adventures. It is made with our Luster Sport yarn. The pattern is a simple eight-row repeat and can be customized to fit your body. The wrap features beads and drop stitches for additional interest. Shifting Sands can be styled multiple ways and is perfect for wearing poolside as a swimsuit coverup or just lounging around the house with an iced drink in your hand. 

  • Click the Videos tab to watch how to make this wrap, add the beads, and seam the panels.
  • Additional CO stitches and row repeats can be added to the wrap, but may require additional yardage and beads.
  • I strongly recommend a high quality seed bead for this type of bead work. Because they are worked into stitches, it isn’t possible to reapply a broken bead without cutting the yarn and remaking that part of the FO. A high quality bead, such as the Dyna-Mites or Miyuki brands will hold up to much heavier use and incidental contact.
