The gradual color changes create a modern look that pairs well with both casual and dressy outfits. The versatile wrap can be worn in several different ways. Through it over your shoulders. Or, cinch it around your neck with more casual outfits or underneath a jacket or coat. By choosing your own favorite colorways, you can make it to go with a particular outfit. Or choose a more neutral colorway for an accessory that will pair with many different looks.
The sample wrap uses approximately 4/5 of a skein of Scheepjes Whirl in colorway Mid Morning Mocharoo and approximately 1/3 of a skein of Scheepjes Whirlette in colorway Chocolat. Scheepjes Whirl is a fingering weight yarn that gradually changes colors. Using Scheepjes Whirl or another gradient yarn is recommended for the Main Color. Another coordinating solid colored yarn is recommended for the Accent Color. The wrap alternates narrow bands in the solid color with larger crochet lace bands in the gradient yarn.
The Tidelands Wrap is appropriate for an advanced or adventurous beginner. Using fingering weight yarn and making the lace panels can be challenging at first. The pattern becomes easier as you get into the repeats.
The directions are for one size. You can easily adjust the length to make it shorter or longer by reducing or adding to the number of rows. This pattern first appeared as a guest design on Joy of Motion, and you can find it for free there.
