Well What do you think? It turned out to measure 23 X 31". Only 2 hanks!! It grew a bit when wet blocked. This would make a beautiful wrap just I would cast on less like half the amount and go for it. Can you imagine, there are so many gorgeous colors available!!!

Okay the pattern:
Diagonal Cluster Lace
Multiple of 3 sts
Row 1: (WS) Purl
Row 2: K2 *yo, k3, pass first of the 3 knit sts over the 2nd and3rd sts; rep from *, end K1.
Row 3: Purl.
Row4: K1, *K3, pass first of the 3 knit sts over the 2nd and 3rd sts, yo; rep from * end K2.
Rep rows 1--4 .
I crochet cast on 160, sts knitted a garter st border of 13 rows giving me 6 ridges then I am keeping 8 sts in garter then started the pattern (144 sts) I knit kind of loose so I am knitting with a size US5 needle. I like it to be a loose knit rather then tight or to gauge knit. It makes for a very bouncy soft feel. so far it measures about 30" wide and it should be enough to make it at least 30" long.
By the way go http://nonnasyarnstudio.com/ to see all the other colors that are available.
