Willow Creek Wrap


A lacy crocheted wrap


Wrap your shoulders in lacy cotton as you stroll in the springtime. Willow Creek Wrap will add a light and lovely layer. It is crocheted in Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima Fine in color #3717 Sand. It requires 7 skeins. This yarn is my favorite cotton yarn out there! It is really soft and pleasant to work with and wear. You'll also need a size G/6/4 mm crochet hook, 2 large buttons, sewing thread to match your yarn, a sewing needle, and a yarn needle. It is available on Ravelry, Etsy, and Craftsy for just $3.

I designed this stunning wrap with my friend Shauna, of Slappy Feet Design, in mind. It seemed like something she would really love, and it is lacy and light for warmer weather, though, let's be real, if you live in the south, like me, you aren't wearing any more layers than necessary in the summer. Start now, and it will be perfect for fall! I chose the color because Shauna likes neutrals. I perused the latest Pantone Color Report to find the trendiest neutral, and here you have it, Sand, though they call it "Hazelnut". Same thing. More or less.


This wrap uses vertical stripes of solid stitching alternating with stripes of a lace pattern I came up with myself. I named it Torch Stitch. I decided to make the stripes diagonal, and make a solid border around all 4 sides. I attached 2 large buttons so that it can be buttoned on one shoulder, but you can play around with how it's styled, as I did in the pictures below.
