Interweave Crochet Summer 2018: Cruising Wrap
Few things are more versatile than a wrap. What else can you place around various parts of your body to add style? Just think of the many ways you can use a wrap: as a sarong, a scarf, a stole, a shrug . . . the possibilities are almost endless!. You could even style it with shawl pins. If you’re looking for a versatile summer wrap, the Cruising Wrap from Interweave Crochet Summer 2018 is for you!
This lacy bit of awesomeness is the perfect addition to your collection of summer accessories. Worked in a DK-weight yarn, this quick and easy wrap modifies a Japanese stitch diagram to become a piece inspired by high tides, windy days, and the misty breeze that blows off the Pacific Ocean. I can totally see myself beachcombing in this wrap—can’t you?
Whether you’re on a boat, at the beach, or by the pool, all you need to do is drape this wrap around you and just wait for the compliments to start! And if you’re looking for a little something extra to make this wrap really pop, make sure to add the fringe at each end. Imagine that fluttering in the breeze!
Don’t wait for the summer to wrap up (see what I did there?) to start this project! We can’t wait to see what you create, and we’re sure it will be a go-to accessory for years to come.
