Forest Hills Wrap: A FREE Knitting Pattern

This breezy knitting pattern was inspired by the yarn choice. Most of the time I pick the yarn before I come up with the project and this was no exception. Rewind yarn came out last year (2018) from Lion Brand and I grabbed some up right away. It’s a bulky tape yarn, but it’s light …
