The Flora Wrap/ Shawl - Free Crochet Pattern

Wrap yourself in this light and lacy shawl, perfect for spring! 


*Disclaimer: This post includes affiliate links.


Finished Size: 145 cm long x 35 cm wide

For a wider/narrower wrap work add/ less more pattern repeats. The stitch pattern is a multiple of 8 sts + 1. Add 1 for base chain.
For a longer/shorter wrap work more/less row repeats 2-5.





Materials needed:

- 3 skeins of  Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable Yarn 3940 Echo (I have used approx 2 and half skeins.)

- 5 mm crochet hook

- yarn needle to sew in the ends

- scissors.




Stitches, Terms (US) and abbreviations used:
ch: chain

sc: single crochet

tr: triple crochet: yarn over twice, insert the hook into the stitch indicated; *yarn over and draw through the stitch (you have 4 loops on the hook), yarn over again and draw through the first 2 loops on the hook; yarn over and draw through the next 2 loops on hook; yarn over again and draw through the last 2 loops on the hook.
st: stitch

yo: yarn over
sk: skip

Shell: here a shell is made by working 4tr into same st.



Flora Wrap Pattern: 

The Flora Wrap is worked in rows back and forth in two parts.

You will begin by working one half of the wrap, then start the other half by working on the opposite site of foundation chain.

The foundation chain will be placed right in the middle of the wrap and the 2 halves will be symmetrical.

I would suggest you to practice the stitch pattern with another yarn, because it's hard to unravell the Unforgettable yarn.



First half of the wrap:

Chain 66. (for 8 pattern repeats)

Row 1: 1sc into 2nd ch from hook, *ch2, sk 3 ch, 4tr into next ch, ch2, sk 3ch, 1sc into next ch* ; repeat from * to end. Turn.

Place a st marker into the foundation chain where you have worked the first sc of row 1! This will be important for the second half of the wrap.

Row 2: ch1, 1sc into first st, *ch3, sk next ch- 2 and 1tr, work 1sc into next tr, ch3, sk 2 tr and ch-2, 1sc into next sc; repeat from * to end. Turn.

Row 3 (shell row): ch4 (count as 1tr), work 1tr into first st, *ch2, sk ch-3, 1sc into next sc, ch2, sk ch-3, work 4tr into next sc; repeat from * to end, omitting 1tr at the end of the last repeat. Turn.

Row 4: ch1, 1sc into fist st, *ch3, sk 2tr and ch-2, 1sc into next sc, ch3, sk ch-2 and 1tr, work 1sc into next tr, repeat from *, ending last repeat in top of ch4. Turn.

Row 5 (shell row): ch 1, 1sc into first st, *ch2, sk ch-3, work 4tr into next sc, ch2, sk ch-3, work 1sc into next sc; repeat from * to end. Turn.

Repeat rows 2-5 until you have 31 shell rows.

Edging:

Row 1: worked the same as Row 2 above: ch1, 1sc into first st, *ch3, sk next ch- 2 and 1tr, work 1sc into next tr, ch3, sk 2 tr and ch-2, 1sc into next sc; repeat from * to end. Turn.

Row 2-4: ch1, *1sc into first st, ch3, sk ch-3 of row below, 1 sc into next sc, repeat from * to end. Turn.

Cut yarn. Fasten off.

Second half of wrap:


Row 1: Holding the wrap with the wrong side facing you, join yarn with a sc into the marked foundation chain. *ch3, sk next 3 ch of foundation, 1sc into next ch (the same chain where you have worked the first shell on the opposite side), ch3, sk next 3 ch of foundation, 1 sc into next ch (the same chain where you have worked the next sc on the opposite side), repeat from * to end, last sc will be work into first ch of foundation.

Row 2 (same as Row 3 from the first half of wrap): ch4 (count as 1tr), work 1tr into first st, *ch2, sk ch-3, 1sc into next sc, ch2, sk ch-3, work 4tr into next sc; repeat from * to end, omitting 1tr at the end of the last repeat. Turn.

Row 3 (same as Row 4 from the first half of wrap): ch1, 1sc into first st, *ch3, sk 2tr and ch-2, 1sc into next sc, ch3, sk ch-2 and 1tr, work 1sc into next tr, repeat from *, ending last repeat in top of ch4. Turn.

Row 4: (same as Row 5 from the first half of wrap): ch 1, 1sc into first st, *ch2, sk ch-3, work 4tr into next sc, ch2, sk ch-3, work 1sc into next sc; repeat from * to end. Turn.

Row 5 (same as Row 2 from the first half of wrap): ch1, 1sc into first st, *ch3, sk next ch- 2 and 1tr, work 1sc into next tr, ch3, sk 2 tr and ch-2, 1sc into next sc; repeat from * to end. Turn.
Repeat rows 2-5 until you have the same number of rows as the first half of wrap, then continue with the edging the same as for the first half.

Cut yarn. Fasten off. Gently wet block the wrap.

I hope you enjoy this pattern!
