Project of the Week: Museo Wrap
Interweave Crochet Spring 2019 has just been released, and I’m smitten with the cover project, the Museo Wrap by Ina Jitari. This stunning wrap uses size 10 crochet thread worked into a series of motifs. It’s a project I can’t wait to start!
The entire wrap consists of circular motifs reminiscent of doilies or mandalas. The circular motifs incorporate popcorn stitches for incredible texture, picot stitches for a lovely lace appearance, and many chain stitches for an airy spring feel. Crochet 48 stunning motifs to create the wrap. Begin with the first motif, then join them as you go with instructions for one- and two-sided joining. Then fill in the center spaces with filling motifs and finish up with a stunning edging.
This project reminds me so much of the stunning lacework my grandmother used to make. She made intricate motifs like these and would join them to create placemats or coverings for her gorgeous antique furniture. This project has that perfect nod to crochet history, but the popcorn stitches and bright color give it a modern feel.
