Many of you have asked for a mid-weight, crocheted wrap so I’m super excited to share today’s pattern! I LOVE this for the transition from summer into fall. It’s made with a simple four row pattern repeat and the yarn is soft as can be with the perfect drape. I also love that the Ferris Wheel Yarn cakes are large so that this wrap only uses three cakes total. It’s self striping, so there’s no need to make color changes. Lion Brand’s created this beautiful color combo called Cherry On Top along with several other options. What do you think? Scroll all the way down for the free pattern, find the ad-free printable on Etsy HERE, or find the kit on sale at Lion Brand HERE.
How difficult is this wrap? It’s simple, but it’s not for complete beginners. It’s got enough variation to keep you interested, yet it’s easy enough for those of you who’ve got all the basic stitches down. I guess I’d call it intermediate for that reason. It’s so fun to see the different colors emerge as you work through the pattern. The large, lacy scallops feature beautiful openwork designs that you can see in the close-up photo below. Isn’t it pretty?
My favorite crocheted wrap has to be the Santa Monica Bias Wrap, and this one is right there with it. They are both light and soft on the skin, making them really versatile.
This piece can certainly work as a wrap, shawl, cover-up or scarf! It’s light enough to throw in a bag if you’re travelling and it holds it’s shape nicely. I could have used it in the air conditioned restaurants in Florida this last week. Hehe! And aren’t these some lovely fall colors? The burnt orange, pumpkin, taupes and pinks. LOVE!
Have you tried the Ferris Wheel yarn (above)? It’s really nice to work with as it doesn’t split or break and as I mentioned before – THE DRAPE!
