The motif used in this wrap brings to mind gently falling snowflakes on a crisp, frosty winterโ€™s day. Although the air outside might be nipping at your nose, this wrap will keep the rest of you toasty warm. The open laciness of the motif means the wrap will still be perfect for cool spring days or in over-air-conditioned rooms in the summer. Make this wrap in a colorful yarn and the motif will have you thinking of a beautiful floral garden.

The open, airy look of this wrap is achieved by two things: 1) using a larger size crochet hook than you might normally use with this weight yarn and 2) choosing a yarn that has no stretch. The chosen yarn works wonderfully to bring out the full laciness of this pattern. If you choose a yarn made of 100% wool or other fibers, you may not achieve the full effect of the lacy pattern.)
