Pattern of the Week: Aloe Wrap

The Aloe Wrap makes a great addition to any wardrobe due to its beauty and versatility. The wrap looks complex, but is actually quite quick and easy to make. The geometric edges create a unique design simple enough to pair with a wide variety of styles and textures.  What would you choose to layer beneath this statement piece? I’m thinking a roomy white fashion tee and a long pendant necklace. Partner that up with the right pair of jeans and camel-hued boots, and you can’t go wrong.

Inspired by historic lace, this accessory combines single crochet stitches and chains to create its intricate patterning. Half double crochet stitches and chains make up the diamond patterning that lines the edges. You will be rocking a modern look that boasts classic details. And the brilliance behind the handmade effort? Claim your bragging rights and make this wrap.

    I think the quantity of yarn is wrong – it can’t use 13 hanks of 400 plus yards each !

      From Susanna T., our Project Editor in Crochet: Although it may seem like this wrap uses a lot of yarn, the amount given is correct. This is a huge wrap – 112″ long, but the awesome thing about it is that it’s easily modified by changing the number of repeats.
