Patty’s Wrap is a crocheted tribute to the knitted design, Happy Street, by Veera Valimaki. It is worked from the top down in lace-weight yarn. Formed using short rows of bold stripes, the final wrap is a symmetrical, crescent-shaped shawl.
After blocking, the shawl/wrap is 87.5 inches (208 cm) along the outer curve and 15 inches (38 cm) at the widest point.
The following stitches were used: chain, foundation single crochet, single crochet, slip stitch.
Patty’s Wrap is named for my marvelously talented friend, Patty--designer, knitter, crocheter, weaver.
Note on yarn usage: The pattern calls for (3) 600-yd hanks (65g each) of lace-weight yarn. When I finished crocheting, I had 4g of main color, 27g of contrasting color one, and 17 grams of contrasting color two remaining. So, it is possible to make this shawl with fewer yards/meters of yarn than what is stated here.
Gina has provided recipe information and a “print and go” page as well as a “print and go” chart to drop in your project bag.
The pattern pdf includes 14 photos. Several show the wrap as it develops.
We would like to thank our wonderful tester, Teri DiLibero, for testing this wrap for us.
