GAUGE:
8 sts = 4" (10 cm) in pattern. Note: Not all the yarns used in the Wrap will work to the specified gauge. Some will work larger and some smaller than gauge. This is not a problem in the overall wrap. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
Foundation Row (Note Instead of making a long base chain and working up from that, this foundation creates a chained edge and the first row of sc at the same time.

It is very elastic and worth learning.) Start with a slip knot, chain two, insert hook in second chain from hook, draw up a loop, yarn over, draw through one loop, yarn over and draw through two loops.

This resembles one single crochet with its own chain at the bottom – one ch/sc made.

The subsequent stitches are built on the stitch before.

Work the next stitch under two loops of the “chain” at the bottom of the first sc (as you would with a usual base chain).

Insert hook in the chain, draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through one loop, yarn over and draw through two loops.

Repeat for the length of foundation.

rev slip st tbl (reverse slip stitch through back loop) Working backwards, from left to right, working through back loop only of each st, draw a loop through, draw through loop on hook.

NOTES:
1.

This project is worked lengthwise from the neck down in a simple single crochet-chain pattern on a large hook using bulky and super-bulky weight yarns.

The yarns change every row, with the loose ends later bound with additional strands to make a fringe.

2.

This wrap is shaped with pairs of increases that create room in the shoulders, a shallow point in the back, and a few inches at the front edge that can be turned back for a shawlcollared effect.



Pattern allows for a finished fringe length of 8".

If longer fringe is desired, leave longer tails of unworked yarn at both ends of every row and allow extra yardage.

For striped pattern, work one row each of yarn A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H.

Repeat for pattern.



Editor’s Note: When creating fringe using Homespun please note that because of the texture of the yarn the fringe will fray when cut.

If you prefer a non-frayed look you can knot the ends, knit or crochet a fringe, or use hairspray or fray check.


INSTRUCTIONS
WRAP

Row 1: With A, leaving a starting tail of 9", make a foundation row of ch/sc 133 sts long.

(Alternately, ch 134 very loosely, sc in second chain from hook and in each ch to end.) Cut yarn leaving a 9" tail and secure by pulling end through stitch.

With B, leaving 9" tail, replace hook into last stitch and draw a loop of yarn B through as if completing that sc – 133 sc made.

Turn.

Row 2: Ch 1, sc in first sc.

(Ch 1, skip one sc, sc in next sc) 33 times.

Mark sc just worked for center back.

Continue in pattern to end of row, working sc in last sc.

Leave 9" tail, pull end through stitch.

With next yarn in stripe pattern, leave 9" tail, replace hook in stitch and draw a loop through – 33 sc, center back sc, 33 sc made.

Turn.

Shawl Collar Work six rows even as follows: Rows 3-8: Ch 1, sc in first sc.

(Ch 1, skip ch-space, sc in next sc) to end, moving up marker at center back sc; leave 9" tails and change to next yarn as established.

Make pairs of increases (each side of center) every other row four times as follows: Row 9: (inc) Ch 1, sc in first sc.

(Ch 1, skip ch-space, sc in next sc) 32 times – you should be in the sc just before marker.

Ch 1 and sc again in same sc.

Ch 1, skip ch-space, sc in center sc, moving marker.

(Ch 1, sc) twice in next sc.

(Ch 1, skip ch-space, sc in next sc) to end.

Leave tail and change to next yarn as established – 69 sc made.

Row 10: Ch 1, sc in first sc.

(Ch 1, skip ch-space, sc in next sc) to end, moving marker, leaving tail and changing to next yarn as established.

Turn.

Rows 11-16 Repeat Rows 9 (inc) and 10 alternately.

Now make increases every fourth row six times as follows: Rows 17-40: Repeat Row 9 once, Row 10 three times.

Repeat five times more – five stripe patterns completed.

Row 41: With A, repeat Row 9.

Leave 9" tail, secure yarn.

With A again, leave 9" tail and join in last sc.

Do not turn.

Work rev slip st tbl across.

Leave 9" tail, break off.


FRINGE

Cut 44 lengths 18" of A.

Divide the loose ends at each side into 11 groups of four (some will have only three).

With two strands of A tie a looped fringe into the row at (or near) the center of each group of loose ends.

Draw loose ends into loop along with A strands.

Do this across both sides.

Trim evenly.

Weave in any remaining ends.



TIPS

Chenille Thick & Quick sheds a bit.

To reduce fraying, knot every cut end, especially the tail at the end of a row.

Later, if those tails need to be trimmed, just knot again at desired length.
