Happy first day of autumn, everyone! It feels ridiculous typing that since it's currently 92 degrees in Chicago, but hey - let's not talk about that. To celebrate the beginning of a truly fabulous season (especially for knitwear), I'm introducing a new blog segment: Design Revamp. In this segment, I'll revisit past designs & re-release them with some kind of new schnazzy update. Maybe that means more modification options, expanded sizes, or just an update to my new pattern layout.

For my first Design Revamp, I'm taking on one of my most popular patterns: the Rachel Wrap. This was part of the first three designs I ever released last year (along with the Maddie Headband & the Jaclyn Mitts), & it was originally only available in one size. Now, this piece is available in Adult Small/Medium AND Adult Large/X-Large! And it has the pretty new pattern design I've been releasing all my recent patterns in.

This pattern has become a real favorite of mine during transitioning temperatures - it's basically a cardigan/vest/wrap all in one, so it's perfect to throw over a t-shirt, dress, or really anything for just a bit of added warmth. And you can wear it so many different ways - one way it's got a shawl collar that flips into a hood, the other way it's like a nice long, flowy vest.

The sizes are now expanded on the made to order Rachel Wrap as well. If you're not a knitter, you can head over to Etsy & get one custom made just for you, in one of Madelinetosh's amazing colorways!

You can find the expanded Rachel Wrap pattern on Ravelry, Etsy, & through the link below. If you've already purchased the pattern, you should have received an email from me with an updated PDF with the expanded sizes. Happy knitting!
