Model: Melissa Mall
I had a single skein of this fuzzy, aqua yarn in my stash that was just begging to be made into something springy. I settled on a simple rectangular wrap, with a stitch pattern simple enough that I had it memorized by the third row. The result is something light, fluffy (finished in one night) and just the right size to keep your shoulders warm when it’s cool outside.
Finished Measurements: Wrap shown measures 12″ x 40″ after blocking
- Caron Dazzleaire [80% Acrylic, 20% Nylon; 155yd/141m per 3oz/85g skein]; 1 skein in Tidal Pool
- N/15 (10.00mm size) hook
Gauge: 5sts/4 rows = 4″/10cm in patt but this is not critical
Note: The wrap can be made to any size, just be sure to begin with a multiple of 3 + 1.
V-st: dc, ch 1, dc in same st as last dc.
Row 1: Ch 28. Dc in 4th ch from hook. *Skip 2 ch, V-st. Repeat from * across until 3 ch remain. Skip 2 ch, dc in last ch. Turn.
