This design was inspired by my friend’s Volkswagen Cabriolet, a glorious jalopy that would transport us through the streets of my hometown of Athens, Ohio, during my high school years in the 1980s. Winters in Athens were brutal in terms of intensity and duration. The ten miles or so that we would travel to AHS in the Cabriolet during the dead of winter felt interminable. But just when you were thinking it might never be warm again, spring would make a most welcome, albeit fleeting, appearance. This wrap pays homage to how glorious it was to be in a Cabriolet when the seasons started to change. That first 50 degree day? The driver’s window would be rolled down. Just enough to let in a hint of the arctic air that was still palpable. A few weeks later? Add a crack in the passenger side window. By the end of April, both front windows would be all the way down. Slowly, but just as surely as spring was making itself known, all the windows would be rolled completely down. And then, on that magical day, when the summer sun was out for good, the top would be peeled back and all bets were off.
Fingering weight merino wool. Yarn was hand dyed by Serendipitous Wool and Viola Yarns.

Carefully hand wash and rinse in cold water using a wool wash. Do not mix with other garments. Do not agitate excessively or expose to temperature extremes, or the wool could felt. Gently press (not wring!) out excess water with a towel and dry flat in the original shape. Do not hang to dry.
