I have a project I want to share with you all! This is another collaboration that I am so grateful for. It is our first time working together. I was so elated that when I approached her, she instantly said yes to my proposal.
For this project, Lauren of TWENTY FOUR THREADS, graciously sponsored the yarns I needed to make the sample of my wrap. Lauren is not only a great yarn dyer, but she is also an amazing crochet designer. Check out her Instagram page to see her beautiful makes and while you are there, you might want to follow her account so you won’t miss any of her posts and shop updates.
The colors I picked for The Phlox Wrap were a bit out of my comfort zone, but I am so glad that they worked out well and came out great! I used the colors Green Stuff and Cranberries yarns in fingering weight (1). These yarns are so awesome to work with and they’re very soft! Most of my pattern testers used Twenty Four Threads yarns and the color combinations they picked are all so pretty! You can check out their versions at the bottom of this post.
The kit for this pattern is now available in Lauren’s shop, TWENTY FOUR THREADS. Go, check it out and purchase your kit so you can make The Phlox Wrap in the color(s) you prefer. By the way, you can use one solid/colorway/variegated yarn in making this wrap. The choice is yours!
The Phlox Wrap pattern features some crochet pattern combinations. Who would think that simple chain and slip stitches combined with granny stitches and pompom edging will create a beautiful pattern? Well, I never thought of it until I tried it. I love this process of trial and error. It gives me the ability to construct something simple and turns it into something wonderful.
With the simplicity of the stitches used in making this pattern, your wrap will be done in no time. This airy and light wrap is a perfect accessory to add to your spring and summer outfits. Like Angela of Cloud Design Crochet said, “this wrap is great on cooler summer nights as it is the perfect balance of being airy and stylish.” You can wear and style this wrap in so many ways. For example, you can just wrap it around your shoulder or you can use it as a scarf.
This pattern is constructed in 2 parts where you first work the first part, of course. The second part is worked by mirroring the instructions of the first part. This pattern is reversible and can be modified to your desired size and dimension.
