Today’s super simple, yet beautifully luxurious pattern, works up quickly and easily with a chunky, pima cotton! It’s the perfect, mindless summer project as you work a basic stitch repeat throughout the pattern. Named “Agape” for love, it’s seriously like wearing a gentle hug. I’ve been on a crocheted wrap kick (aka the recent Summertide Wrap) LOL! You can see today’s full, free pattern below or you may choose to purchase the ad-free, printable PDF from Etsy HERE. Please also check out the video tutorial I’ve linked to as well if you need some extra help. Enjoy!
When I learned about this chunky weight, drapey cotton that’s available from WeCrochet (HERE), I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! Many cottons that I find are of the kitchen cotton variety and aren’t always ideal for shawls and wearables (I’ve loved the kitchen cottons for washcloths and more, of course). I’m thrilled to know about this yarn, not only for wearables, but for blankets. If you want to make a super special baby blanket – OMG! Also, did I mention it’s chunky? I’d definitely say it’s sort of like a “thick & thin” because it does get thin in places. However, this adds to the rustic, natural vibe of the yarn in my opinion.
This pattern works up quickly because I used a really large hook. The chunky yarn, while fluffy, is still airy and light enough for spring and summer use. If you’ve got a last minute gift to make, or you enjoy making prayer shawls, this is your project. 🙂 Billow isn’t a cheap or inexpensive yarn, so it’s certainly one that you’d use for meaningful projects.
So, let’s get to this pattern! AND, while my YouTube tutorial from a few years back uses different yarns and another hook size, the basic concept on how to make this granny style triangle shawl is the same. Check out my video tutorial HERE to help you along with this pattern if you’d like!

A simple, classic granny stitch pattern meets a luxurious pima cotton with this feminine triangle wrap pattern. Made with a large hook, this wrap works up relatively quickly, has amazing drape, and is like wearing a comfy hug wherever you go. Whether you make one for yourself, your best friend, or for charity, the meaning of agape, love, will surely be felt. Pair it with cut-off jeans, your fave maxi, or a long skirt for an understated boho look.

Row 2 Ch 3, turn, 2dc into the first st, (3dc, ch 2, 3dc) in middle ch2sp, 3dc in last st of row which is the ch 3 of the previous row. (12 and 2 ch sts)

Repeat row 3 for entire pattern working 3dc in each space across to middle ch2sp and in each sp to end of row.
Work until your piece is approximately 30” from bottom tip to the top of the wrap. You can make it longer or shorter if you’d like by simply crocheting for more or fewer rows.
Tie off and weave in ends! Feel free to add tassels to the points or fringe along the sides.
