About the Autumn Jewels Wrap….
The CAL: This is a FREE CAL and the pattern will be released on my website over a three week period (see schedule below). Can’t wait three weeks to complete it? No problem, I’ll also have an ad-free PDF available in my Ravelry shop for a small fee, starting on 7/22/2018. The PDF also includes crochet charts for those who prefer them to the written instructions.
Tag your projects with #AUTUMNJEWELS on social media!
The Yarn: Now let’s talk about the yarn! Katy custom dyed this yarn in three beautiful, riche jewel toned colorways for Pattern Paradise and this pattern, and the yarn is exquisite! It is called Squid Singles and is a 100% superwash merino that comes in 100 gram balls (approximately 437 yards/399 meters). You’ll find this yarn is a super soft, dainty fingering/sock weight. It feels slinky on the skin and has wonderful drape. The base that Katy uses is worsted spun which means it is durable and less likely to pill and makes the yarn more breathable even in warmer climates. You can feel good about this yarn for another reason too; Katy sources all of her yarn products from farms that are cruelty free.
Get Your Yarn Today!
While supplies last, Katy will offer all three colors in her ETSY shop with FREE shipping (US domestic only) with coupon code AUTUMNJEWELS and if you order by 7/18/2018 you will receive it in time for the Week #1 release, so don’t wait!
The Pattern: I designed this pattern with two hanks of Katy’s lovely yarn. I wanted something with a bit more interest than the traditional pointy shawl or rectangular wrap, so I added a crescent shape. The design is comprised of simple stitches in three sections, the Base, the Lace and the Border. It has a wingspan of approximately 56″ and it’s about 21″ at the deepest point, but of course, it is easy to adjust and I’ve given you some suggestion in the pattern too.
If you are concerned about working with a finer weight yarn, don’t be. This yarn glides through your hook quickly and the lacy sections work up super quick. The design makes this a very versatile piece that you can wear over a fancy dress or jeans and a t-shirt, or try it draped in the front and tied in the back. It could even be worn around your waist as a beach cover up if you like…..
