In a simple multiple you can adjust this crochet shoulder wrap for a custom fit. Thus, it’s the perfect wrap for both children and adults.
You could work this up narrow for a scarf or even wider for a blanket if you like.
I used Lion Brand Pound of Love yarn, which is an acrylic yarn that offers a lot of stretch for a comfortable fit around the shoulders. This yarn also makes it great for the cold winter weather.
For the summer you could make this in a lightweight cotton for cool summer evenings. Cotton also blocks really nice which would help to better bring out the stitch pattern.
Depending on the yarn you use, this could be made for all the seasons throughout the year.
The stitch pattern used is known as the cluster v-stitch, or as a small v=stitch shell. I worked a single crochet in between for a bit more variation in the lace. Mine is shown in a solid color, but you could also work this up in stripes as you like.
