I had so much fun making this wrap this weekend! It’s just right for this in between weather. The yarn is warm, but the mesh is cool, and the “wings” in the stitches remind me of all the birds flying south. Here’s the free crochet pattern for the Winged Wrap!
Remember when you were a kid, and you drew birds flying like very tired Vs? I know I wasn’t the only one! The subtle rows of wings in the Winged Wrap are like a flock of these birds hugging your shoulders, wrapping around your neck, or adding a splash of color to your next outfit! The Winged Wrap makes a wonderful layer, a fantastic gift, and a perfect comfort shawl.
- US – J, 6.0mm hook (Furls Fiberarts used)
- 600 yds Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball (Worsted/”4″/UK: 10 ply; 518 yds/473 m; 5.3 oz)
