Pattern of the Week: Cardinal Wrap
I really love to wear long, lovely, lacy wraps especially as the temperature drops and my coats get longer. Lucky for me, I also like to make large lace projects, whether crocheted or knitted. Even if large-scale lace isn’t usually your thing, you’ll want to make some room in your queue this winter for the Cardinal Wrap, designed by Arica Presinal for Interweave Crochet Winter 2019!
The striking stitch pattern used in this beautiful wrap combines open lace stitches with popcorn stitches to form textural diamonds that keep the eye moving over the large wrap. It’s fun to stitch all those popcorns, and you’ll have the pattern memorized in no time.
Don’t know the difference between a popcorn stitch, puff stitch, and a bobble? You’ll learn the difference in Interweave Crochet Winter 2019 and find tons of projects to practice all three, including the Cardinal Wrap.
The yarn for this project is Harrisville Designs silk & wool, a 50/50 blend that is durable, breathable, and slightly flecked for lots of personality. Worked in an open, lacy pattern like this one, it has incredible drape and stitch definition.
Whatever yarn you choose, I hope you’ll join me in making the Cardinal Wrap this winter. Check out Interweave Crochet Winter 2019 for tons of fun, textural designs that will make this winter your most fun and fashionable ever!
