Simple arch/forest floor wrap

May 5, 2012

After months of promising but never delivering, I finally finished this loose and lacy wrap for a friend back in Saskatchewan. We worked together as copywriters at the local newspaper and honestly, the place got cold enough to keep meat fresh, so hopefully this helped a bit.

It’s crocheted on a huge hook — 13.5 mm, purchased from Sistermaide. It’s a lovely, warm hook that actually sings when it glides across wool. It was a joy to use.

The arch pattern I used to make the wrap is as follows.

With worsted weight yarn, chain a multiple of 6 + 2 chains.

ROW 1: Sc in second chain from hook and in next chain, chain 3 *skip next 3 chains, sc in next 3chs, chain 3; repeat from * across to last 5 chains, sc in last 2 chains.

ROW 2: Chain 1, turn; sc in first sc, *5 dc in next chain-3 sp, skip next sc, sc in ext sc; repeat from * across.

ROW 3: Chain 1, turn; sc in first sc, ch 2, skip next dc, sc in next 3 dc *ch 3, skip next 3 sts, sc in next 3 dc; repeat from * across to last 2 sts, ch 2, skip next dc, sc in last sc.

ROW 4: Ch 3 (counts as your first dc), turn; 2 dc in next ch-2 sp, skip next sc, sc in next sc *5 dc in next ch-3 sp, skip next sc; repeat from * across to last ch-2 sp, 2 dc in last ch-2 sp, dc in last sc.

ROW 5: Ch 1, turn; sc in first 2 dc, * ch 3, skip next 3 sts, sc in next 3 dc; repeat from * across to last 5 sts, ch 3, skip next 3 sts, sc in last 2 dc.

Repeat rows 2-5 for pattern. Easy! Big hook and worsted weight in a variety of colours made this open, stretchy and lacy. A much smaller hook would make a much thicker, tighter fabric and more pronounced arches.
