Greetings fellow crafters! Hannah here, the knitwear designer, blogger, and maker behind Bears Den Essentials (@bearsdenessentials) with a warm, cozy, chunky knit pattern for you all. I live in Montana, where it can snow up to twelve months out of the year, so when I found out I would be having a February wedding OUTSIDE, I knew I needed to figure out some cute but functional layering options. 

I’ve known since I was a little girl that I wanted to have some element of what I wear on my wedding day to be handmade, so I started brainstorming this wedding wrap idea as soon as we set a date. Knitted in seed stitch, which is made by alternating knit stitches and purl stitches within a row and between rows, I’ve put together a chunky knitting pattern that keeps you warm– the key is allowing for about ~2-5” of negative ease so the wrap stays snug around your shoulders as you wear it in. It’s perfect as a beginner’s knitting project because it’s knitted flat and gives you good practice with knit and purl stitches.

The “Something Knitted” part is complemented by a “Something Blue” piece, which in this pattern is a 1.5” thick satin ribbon that I ordered online from Joann’s. The flat knit comes together by threading the blue satin ribbon through both edges of the knit, cinching the edges, and tying it all together with a bow. I walk you through the steps for this towards the end of the pattern, and you’ll find it creates a cute but very warm finished wrap that you can wear outside. I’m so excited to share this pattern with you, and I hope you enjoy wearing this special knit on your special day as well!


Yarn: Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick And Quick Yarn [106 Yards (97 meters) | 170 grams (6 oz) | Super Bulky Weight (Category 6)]

    • Wrap requires 3-4 Skeins (see size chart below)
      • Main Color (MC)
  • RECOMMENDED COLOR: MC –“Fisherman”

  • Knitting Needles: 

    -24" Circular Knitting Needles size US 13 (9.00mm)


    -Offray 1.5" X 21" Satin Ribbon in Light Blue

    -Jumbo Darning Needle


    GAUGE: Approx  9 sts X 12 rows = 4” x 4” using 9.00mm/US 13 needles


    This pattern is designed to be worn with ~2.5-5.5” of negative ease in circumference. The yarn has a nice stretch to it and the weight will cause it to stretch over time, so I recommend sizing down if you are in between sizes or unsure of which size to make. The wrap should fit snugly but not uncomfortably– You don’t want it sliding down on you on your big day! Model has a chest overarm measurement of 40” in circumference and is wearing a size Adult Medium.


    **To get your chest overarm measurement: Measure the total circumference of your body, passing over your arms and bust point and mid-back, with your arms straight down at your side; keep the tape parallel to the floor.
