I’m so excited to have finished this lacy Chevron Wrap – and there are a few reasons why.
It has been too long since I have shared a new project over here at The Crafty Mummy. It isn’t that I’ve not had things to share but rather be that I haven’t had time to sit down and write about them. But I’m determined to write this week so stay tuned for some catching up posts!
I also am excited because this was a new pattern for me to try and a new type of yarn. I loved both of them!
The yarn is a Caron Cake in colour called Fairie Cake. I had seen these yarn cakes all over social media so I was keen to try one when I spotted the movie in my local Spotlight store. They are not cheap at almost $15 each but they are super soft and lovely to work with. I loved the way the yarn cake pulled from the centre of the ball and retained its shape rather than getting tangled. The colour is the best feature though. It is variegated and there are lots of different colour ways available. This one covered cream, ice blue and teal blue.
The pattern is from Tamara over at Moogly – find it here. It is simple with just two rows that alternate to create the lacy design. My wrap is 71″ x 19″ (180cm x 48cm). I followed the pattern to start with 91 stitches and crocheted 95 rows.
I used two full Caron Cakes in my wrap. These come in lots of colours and I’ve found it is worth looking around as different stores had different colours. Check out Caron cakes on Amazon here.
