This crochet wrap pattern is worked up in a fine yarn, making it great for cooler summer evenings. At the same time, its a fairly solid stitch pattern, so you could make this and wear it year round, including cold winter weather.
I chose two colors (Canadian Flag) colors, but you can just as easily use three or more colors to get a pretty color design. Yarn is carried up at each side, so you don’t have to worry about weaving in a million ends if you decide to use more colors.
One great thing about a crochet wrap is that you can wear it many different ways from a cozy shoulder wrap to a cozy scarf or cowl. All you need is a shawl pin and let your imagination and style guide you.

- Change to new color at last step in last stitch made in previous row/color.
- Carry unused yarn up at the side.
- It is shown here in two colors, which are changed after every two rows. Another option is to use three to five colors and change after each row. It results in a slightly different, yet pretty color design.
