About the Free Lacy Crochet Wrap Pattern

I really love the simplicity of making a rectangular shawl or wrap but adding a really stunning lacy crochet stitch pattern to transform it into something much more.

I find that the trick is to work a relatively simple stitch repeat – like the crochet shell stitch in this example and then throw something else in at intervals in the project to add more drape, detail and beauty.

The great thing about this design is that you can style this wrap to fit with any outfit. It makes a fabulous year round accessory and with a little extra wrapping or seaming it can transform into a cowl or a shrug depending on what you fancy!

Using a mix of beginner and intermediate crochet stitches to create a beautiful textured open lace, this wrap will be your next favourite project.

If you love open stitches and wraps, here are a few other free crochet patterns on my site that I think you will enjoy!

The last one I think you would love to crochet is the Seaglass Bandana Scarf! This scarf is a triangle shaped bandana style scarf, featuring some fun fringe!

The Wrap Tension and Sizing Options

The finished wrap measures 36cm by 152cm

Tension: 16 sts and 11 rows of main set pattern to measure 10X10cm (4X4 in).

Yarn for the Wrap

To make the Evelyn Wrap I used Cotlin by WeCrochet DK Weight, 70% Tanguis Cotton, 30% Linen, 123yds/50g

8 balls of Clarity

I used approximately 880yds to make the wrap.

What Alternative Yarn Could You Use?

If you’re looking for a cotton option then I’d go with Paintbox Yarn Simply Cotton DK as it has so many colours to choose from and is at a great price point.

If you are looking for a good merino wool blend, you should check out Gloss DK by WeCrochet. It is 70% Merino wool, 30% Silk 123yds/50g – for something really special.

Notes

A ch1 at the beginning of a row does not count as a stitch.

A ch4 at the beginning of a row counts as a stitch.

The wrap is worked in rows.

Turn at the end of each row.

If you’d like to transform your wrap into a shrug then just seam either side of the long edges together with a ss seam. I joined mine for 31 rows but you can do as much or as little as you like to suit.

Hello Hannah I’m doing the Evelyn wrap which I absolutely love and which I’d like to thank you for. I do have a query which hopefully you can clear up. In row 28, the first part asks for 4 ch, 4 tr blo and 2 tr in same st (7 tr in total), however the latter part (after the 4tr/ch2/sc x 6), the pattern calls for 1 TR and 5 tr blo which results in 6 tr. is this correct? Should both sides be the same? Thank you so much for your excellent and beautiful work. Regards, Christine

@HanJan Crochet, Thanks for your reply. I’ll continue as written on the pattern. Many thanks.

Hi Christine, Thanks so much for your kind words - I'm so glad you like the pattern! Row 28 needs to add a stitch to get the pattern to sit correctly so I've gone over the numbers again and it looks like it works to me but do let me know if it doesn't work when you do it of course! Have a great day Hannah
