The Picante Wrap – Free Crochet Wrap Pattern

I’ve been publishing so many baby blanket crochet patterns recently that I thought it was about time for something different – how about a free crochet wrap pattern perfect for the cooler days?

The weather here in the UK is still beautiful but there’s starting to be a nip in the air that makes me think of all things autumnal and I’m so excited for the change in season to some. I love the crisp and dewy mornings, the change in the leaves and the evenings drawing in (more of an excuse for crochet time right?!).

So with that in mind I’m so happy to share The Picante Wrap with you.

For me, the new season is all about layering and I love how versatile this wrap is. With a delicate lace teamed with a simple edging you can’t go wrong and it won’t just keep you warm it will look beautiful too.

It’s the perfect treat to make for yourself before you launch into the Christmas gift making and the repeat is so easy that it’s a project you can have on the go and pick up whenever you fancy doing a few rows that you don’t have to think too much about.

You can carry on reading to find the free pattern here in this blogpost or purchase an ad-free, printable PDF version of the lacy Picante Crochet Wrap Pattern in my store to download and print.

More about the Picante Crochet Wrap Pattern

This fabulous wrap (or shawl depending on how you choose to wear it) is the perfect addition to your cool weather wardrobe.

It’s made out just one rectangle of crochet that has some lovely shell stitch detail which is anchored with some simple stitch stripes to pul it all together. Once you’ve made your rectangle, you can just pop some buttons at the point where you’d like your wrap to join and you’re done!

The neckline is really easy to adapt by shuffling your buttons along a little bit – when you get this point I’d experiment before you sew them in place and work out exactly how you’d like your neckline to be.

Yarn for the Picante Crochet Wrap Pattern

I used Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash 100% superwash wool (100g/200m). You’ll need 5 balls of #212 Picante. It’s such a wonderful yarn and there are just so many colours to choose from!

Another option, if you want a mix of acrylic and wool is Wool Ease by Lion Brand Yarns which is a dream to work with too! It’s 80% acrylic, 20% wool and 180m/85g.

Tension and Sizing

The finished crochet wrap measures 64cm by 130cm so is great for just about anyone but you can easily adjust the length and width of it to suit yourself.

Tension of main pattern – 18st and 8 rows = 10cm x 10cm but isn’t essential for this project.
