My dear friend Terra casually asked my opinion on what sort of shoulder wrap would suit her. My opinion? My own design, of course, inspired by several antique laces, a field of flowers and an unusual “multi-garment for men” pattern that was published more than a hundred years ago. This wrap can be worn as pictured, covering the shoulders and upper arms, or with the long ends hanging down the front and back, tabard-style. Make just one panel, add buttons to the short edges, and you have a lovely cowl…leave off the buttons and it makes a gorgeous scarf. You can even add buttons just below the elbows to create cuffs. Make it any way you like it!

The sample was made using 5 50-gr skeins of the lovely Elizabeth Lavold Silky Wool, color 149, Vintage Rose, and an H/8/5mm hook. The pattern is written using U.S. Crochet terminology and the lace section is charted.
