Fortune’s Wrap

Fortune’s Shawlette, and your requests, are the inspiration for Fortune’s Wrap! While the Shawlette is small and dainty, looking lovely as a light summer layer on the shoulders or as a cozy cowl, Fortune’s Wrap is oversize, cozy, crazy versatile… with a little bit of bling!

The bling on the ends of the Fortune’s Wrap come from a bit of Kreinik Twist held together with the yummy Lion Brand Superwash Merino. It’s optional of course, but it’s a great way to dress up your wrap, and your look!

The wrap itself is nicely long and wide – my friend Kim Guzman called it a “Goddess Wrap”! I love that! This means it’ll fit everyone, plus sized or no.

Wear it over your shoulders with a little black dress, wrap it around your neck as a gorgeous scarf, pin it at the shoulder for the perfect fall look – and make one for a friend who needs an extra hug.

Row 87 – 109: Repeat Row 86, decreasing by one block with every row, until there is only one block made on Row 109. Do not turn after Row 109.

Edging Round: Ch 1, sc 444 sts evenly around wrap as follows: 170 sts along each long side, 50 sts along each short side, with one extra st in each corner. Place stitch markers in each of these extra corner sts; join and break yarn. (444 sc sts)

And scene! That wraps up the Fortune’s Wrap, though you’ll want to weave in the ends (not too many!) and block the finished wrap. You’ll need a fair bit of floor space, or a long dining table – lucky for me I have my grandmother’s 10 seater! But blocking really is worth it, as it opens up the lace pattern beautifully.

I hope you enjoy the free Fortune’s Wrap crochet pattern, and make one for yourself to wear – and then maybe another as a gift!

      Thank you Melanie! To print you can use the green Print Friendly button at the bottom of the pattern. :) If that is being glitchy, is another option. :)

    Hi Tamara,

    I made it to row 27 without problems, but I don’t understand the instructions for the next rows (repeat rows 2 – 27).

    This looks absolutely stunning by the way! Thank you for sharing this pattern.

        Tamara Kelly says

        Ack! Thank you Nathalie, my “6” button is sticky and I thought I’d been careful but obviously missed that one. I’ll edit it now! :)

          Once I realized it was a corner-to-corner type pattern, I was fine :-))) But perhaps you could help me with row 27… My decreasing block is not straight like in your picture, it is shaped a little like an inverted V, looks nice, but different than the other side. I am not sure what I am doing wrong.

          • 12

            Cristina says

            I have exactly the same question. It is not very clear how you begin row 27 in order to have straight lines

          • 14

            Tamara Kelly says

            Hm, I’m not sure. I’ll add a video tutorial to me to-do list, I’m not sure what would cause that.

          • 15

            Nathalie says

            Cristina, I played around with it last evening, and by adding a slip stitch in the chain 3 of the last block of previous row at the end of row 26, just before turning, it seems to have solved my problem. My sides are now straight. May be this will help until Tamara has time to do a video tutorial.

      Tamara Kelly says

      This yarn is actually only available online, so you can order it directly through the link. But if you have a craft store, they often have Vanna’s Glamour, which would be a fun substitute! :)

    This is beautiful but I really need a video. I am still pretty new to crochet. I will keep checking because I really want to make this!

    Cristina says

    Ok. perfect. I had already tried this some days ago. But it looks like a decrease, i mean my blocks get fewer and fewer. Is that so or am I making something wrong again?

    • 23

      Tamara Kelly says

      Ok, it depends what section you are on. If you are in rows 26 – 85 you’re decreasing on one side, and increasing on the other, so that the number of blocks stays the same. Row 86 on you’re decreasing on both sides, so that the number of blocks will go down.

        karmandrea says

        Hi! Loving the pattern, thank you. But just wanna ask about your instructions for row 86 — should there be a last ss into ch3 at end of row before the turn, as in row 26?

        Thank you!

    I have fallen in love with this wrap. I have been looking for something to make as a prayer shawl for my younger sister who lives in Mississippi and this one is beyond beautiful. I love the openness of it and I’m sure she’ll love it as it doesn’t really get cold down there.

    Hey. This is great. I’m doing it pink grey & cream striped on my first attempt so thanks for sharing. I’m really fussy on crochet patterns I have to find the perfect pattern to do and this is one :)

    Vicelina Corro says

    It’s a incredible beautiful pattern,but very difficult for me in English….I wondering if you have it in Spanish,if so, I will appreciate so much you can put it in my mail . Congratulations it is so …. Hermoso !!!!!

      Tamara Kelly says

      I’m afraid I don’t speak Spanish well enough to translate it, but I will be making a video as soon as I can! :)

    I must be terribly ignorant. I don’t see how long the beginning chain should be, though from other directions it appears there is one.
    Help! I might like to make this, but can’t.

    :) :)

    Hello dear Tamara Kelly. I have a verybig favour to ask. Some time – just like this “Shawl” for me it is so hard to read and fallow the pattern as I use to do filett crochet and a long time ago it was too. Just wondered – would it be at all possible to make the stich row in fillet crochet. I do not need pages of it as I can very easily follow it. I love the shawl, very attractive. If possible- and have a littletime for me? PLEASE let me know if you could do it or not. It would be so nice :) Thank you anyway for your lovely site and all the nice things you do. Encluding your “DEAR HUSBANDS HELP TOO” Best wishes: Julie. (by the way, thisis my firs time I written to you as I did not make myself silly asking questions)

    • 44

      Tamara Kelly says

      Hi Julie!

      Thank you! This pattern is pretty much filet crochet, but worked corner to corner rather than in rows! If you prefer rows, it’s an easy substitution: work 109 rows of 25 “dc, ch 1, skip 1, dc” block, and then add the pretty edging as written in the pattern. :)

    Thank you for this lovely shawl
    I can’t wait to see the video
    It will be much easy to learn the pattern
    Thank you again

      Tamara Kelly says

      Thank you Suha! To get started, take a look at the tutorial for the Fortune’s Shawlette – that demonstrates how to make the first 25 rows of the wrap! Click here

    I really love the finished item. I was wondering if there is a diagram anywhere? This really helped me through the alpaca wrap which turnen out beautiful.

    Adrienne Lynch says

    Hi Tamara! I have already made a couple of the shawlettes and they came out beautifully. I am interested in doing the wrap, but before I begin I was wondering if it is possible to change the width of the wrap. So, if I wanted to make it 20 blocks across could I start the instructions for row 26 in the pattern after I complete 20 blocks across? Basically, how adjustable is the width of the pattern? Thank you! I love your work. Big fan.

    • 54

      Tamara Kelly says

      Thank you! Yes, you have it exactly right. Just stop increasing on both sides whenever you have the width you want, and jump to Row 26. And then jump to Row 86 when you have the length you want! :)

  12. 55

    Cynthia says

    What classification of difficulty would this pattern be? I am a beginner. Love this but don’t want to start something I can’t finish. Thank you.

    • 56

      Tamara Kelly says

      If you’re good at learning with the help of videos, I think you’d be okay. :) I try to make them easy to understand.

  13. 57


    Great pattern Tamara! I just finished one using a slightly heavier acrylic yarn and an M/9 mm hook. Even though my row and v-stitch counts came out differently (not working to gauge), it still turned out fine. I can see using this pattern to make long, skinny scarves where the width is a lot shorter than this shawl.

    So my question is, what is the “multiple” for the fringe? I’m thinking it’s 3 + 2 + 1 where 2 = the first and last dc-ch 1-dc v-sts and the 1 = where you attached the yarn at the beginning of the first row and did a ch 2. Or does it matter? Thanks in advance.

    Julie says

    My mom wants a light weight wrap that she could wear in the spring or summer. How could I edit this pattern to make it a light weight wrap? Use a lighter weight yarn? Use a smaller hook? Both?

    • 60

      Tamara Kelly says

      This one is pretty darn light and airy already, but to make it even thinner you could use a lighter yarn, or actually use a bigger hook! That will leave bigger “holes” in the stitches. :)

    Wendy Clements says

    Your patterns (all of them) are so lovely! Thank you so much for sharing!! It’s a wonderful gift. I haven’t made any of them yet–I’m just starting out and I’m trying to get a little better before starting impressive looking things, but I am saving your patterns and relishing when I’m ready to go at them! I have even bought some lovely alpaca for the “Alpaca Your Wrap!”

    debbie says

    Love this pattern……One question …am I right in assuming that the width of the wrap will be the measurement across the top of the triangle after row 25?

  17. 65

    debbie says

    Tamara…You can ignore my last comment…….I figured it out after watching your great tutorial a couple of times Thanks for all your lovely patterns!
