This is a free crochet pattern for a pretty wrap. It is made of 2 rectangles, – one for the main body and one for the center strip, that makes the wrap curl slightly in the middle.
It is a charted only pattern, so there are no row by row directions for it.
Yarn 2 skeins Colinette, Art in the shade Heavens Above. 79% wool, 21% bamboo, 100g/173 m-189 yards.
Hook 7 mm
10 cm x 10 cm 4 inches x 4 inches = 15 stitches x 7 rows
This is a size M wrap but shown on a size XS model. The width is 19 cm/7½ inches and 110cm/21½ inches in circumference. Make the strip longer or shorter, so it fits your size. Remember the yarn will stretch somehow with this lacy pattern!
Free Crochet Pattern
Crochet 28 chains. The wrap is now worked sideways.
Work the pattern as the stitchguide shows you below. The pattern repeats itself every 4th stitch, so you can make the wrap a little narrower or wider as you please. Crochet until your work is 110c m/21½ inches long for size M.
Sew the rectangle together, so it forms a tube.
Crochet a picot edging at the top and bottom of the tube. See chart below.
With a tapestry needle sew with big stitches along each side of the seam. Pull slightly so the wrap ruffles a little and make knots at the back side. See below.
Make the center strip: Crochet 48 chains. Crochet the center strip with the same stitch pattern as the wrap for 5½cm/2 inches. Place it over the previously made ruffles and sew it to the back of the wrap, so the seam gets invisible.
This yarn is just wonderful!!! The bamboo gives strength to the wool and adds some shining affect too, so it resembles a wool/silk blend.
