I based the Eagle Wrap on the tail pieces for the costume but made them wing-shaped. This is a very versatile design which can be worn in lots of ways. It is also easy to knit: made from side-to-side in two separate, reflecting pieces starting at the short end and then worked by gradually increasing sts and rows, section, by section, to the longest length at the centre back. Every section within each piece is worked in stocking stitch with short rows, and finished with two rows of reverse stocking stitch.
Every section is essentially a repeat of the second section worked for each piece, but with more stitches and rows added. The two pieces are grafted together after blocking. To finish, I designed a lightly curved cabled band which is sewn on along the top edge of the wrap.
The large wrap is shown here in Tormentil to match the costume, when it magnificently served its purpose as the Eagle’s wings.
