Mercator Rectangular Wrap Knitting Pattern

The Mercator projection is a mapping technique developed by a Flemish cartographer in 1569 that became the nautical mapping standard of its age. The Mercator projection takes our roughly spherical world and converts it into something flat, rectangular, and easy to use.

This pattern aims to do the same thing - by letting you convert a giant ball of yarn into a rectangular, easy-to-wear wrap!

Constructed with only knit stitches and with a clever turn enabled by short row techniques, you’ll end up with a soft, squishy, garter stitch wrap that looks like you’ve knit it in the round. Your gradient yarn will thank you.
