This rectangular wrap is begun at the hem and knitted toward the center back. Stole may be shortened to wrap length by working fewer repeats in the morning glories section but taking care to end on the same row as the knitting pattern instructs. Using smaller needles and finer yarn will also produce a smaller piece. Sample gained approximately 30% in length and width when blocked.
