Spangle Wrap Super Scarf
A month or so ago, I received this lovely, sparkly metallic yarn from Premiere Yarns. I was pretty excited as I don’t often work with novelty yarns and this one had just the right amount of glitz and glamour for the holiday season and, it was in rich shades of purple, which is my favorite color! I knew I wanted to make an elegant, dressy and lacy wrap / super scarf to wear to holiday parties and such. Although I wanted lace, I wanted a more updated lace rather than the traditional type – so this one is more geometric and edgy.
The yarn is a #3 weight, is easy to work with and has nice drape too. It comes in a wide range of variegated colors and would work well for tops, shawls, jewelry and more! The brand recommends a 4mm hook to work with this yarn, but I chose something bigger because I wanted a loose, “drapey” look for this wrap (I threw it on the back of a chair while I finished getting ready for a party and I loved how it looked draped!). I find when you want the yarn to stand out, the simpler the stitches the better. I really wanted this yarn to shine (pun intended) so I kept the stitches super easy and the repeat a simple 5 row sequence.
I made this wrap/scarf a very generous 20″ wide by 72″ long (not including fringe) but it is easily adjusted up or down by adding row repeats for the height or adjusting the beginning chain in increments of 17 for the length! I added a simple fringe for a dramatic effect – it’s the holiday season after all!
Hint: This one will work up super quick if you need a last minute wrap for a holiday party or maybe a gift.

- Weave ends as you work
- Repeat instructions in [ ] or * as indicated.
- The stitch count is in ( ) at end of each row.
- You can find plenty of fringe tutorials on line, but here are two I like:
Row 1: Ch222, tr in 5th ch from hook (skipped chs count as tr), [skip 2, VSt in next ch] 3 times; *ch11, skip 10, VSt in next ch, [skip 2, VSt in next ch] 2 times*, repeat between * 11 times; skip 2, tr in last 2 ch.
Row 2: Ch4, turn, tr in next st, *VSt in center of next 3 VSt, ch11*, repeat between * 11 times; VSt in center of next 3 VSt, tr in last 2 sts.
Rows 3 & 4: Ch4, turn, tr in next st, *VSt in center of next 3 VSt, ch10*, repeat between * 11 times; VSt in center of next 3 VSt, tr in last 2 sts.
Row 5: Ch4, turn, tr in next st, *VSt in center of next 3 VSt, ch5, sc around chains from previous 3 rows (so that they are captured in the sc), ch5*, repeat between * 11 times; VSt in center of next 3 VSt, tr in last 2 sts.
Row 6: Ch4, turn, tr in next st, *VSt in center of next 3 VSt, ch10*, repeat between * 11 times; VSt in center of next 3 VSt, tr in last 2 sts.
Rows 7 to 26: Repeat Rows 2 to 6 four times
Border: Turn to work down short side of wrap, *sc evenly to next corner, 3sc in corner *, repeat between * to end, join to first st. Fasten off.
Note: When working the border be sure to have the same number of stitches on opposite sides (top and bottom; left and right sides)
Add fringe for a dazzling dramatic look!
