This romantic crochet wrap gets its beautiful drape from one of my favorite fibers, alpaca. It can be worn in a multitude of ways, including over your shoulders for a special-occasion stole, or around your neck and tucked into your overcoat for extra warmth on cold days. If you prefer something less formal, just omit the beads!
