The summer crochet lace wrap pattern can be finished off in two ways for two slightly different looks to meet your individual style. As for the number of ways that you can wear it, is up to your imagination. However, I’ve shown you several possibilities for this styling crochet wrap in the following images.
To wear this beauty as shown below you will need a shawl pin. This is really cool because it allows the wrap to drape down at the front.
In the image below you can see it worn long like an elegant scarf. This is one of my favorite ways to show off the pretty lace. It looks super cool over a tank, but you could wear it like that with just about anything from a summer dress to a winter sweater. This would also look very sharp in white for a wedding.
Another option is to wrap it around the neck for a cozy scarf in the winter. This is nice because it secures the opening of the jacket to keep the drafts out without adding too much bulk.
As you can see, the lace at the top of the wrap is different than at the bottom of the wrap. If you want both sides to look somewhat the same you simple change where you end the pattern repeat. See the variation instructions at the bottom of the pattern.
This wrap pattern is 64 by 18 inches. However, it is very easy to adjust the length in a multiple of four. As for the width, simply stop crocheting once it’s wide enough.
I used Cotton Fair by Premier Yarns, a fine #2 cotton/acrylic blend. The yarn is light and soft, which along with the open lace stitch, makes it great for the hot summer weather.
At the same time it easy for you to substitute with almost any kind of yarn that you have on hand. However, for a summer wrap, I would recommend something in similar weight.
The Stitch Pattern
The lacy mesh stitch works well in between the rows of the v-stitches. It’s nice and open to give you a cover, but without adding any additional heat in the hot summer months.
I simply love this stitch pattern because not only is it pretty, but it’s also quick to crochet up; and it makes the yarn go a long way. Two other patterns using the same stitch pattern are this top and this scarf.
