Notes From the Designer:

The Cassia Wrap is a design inspired by the beautiful colors of the Red Cassia, a plant native to South Asia. The lacy Star Flower stitch was chosen to emulate the floral qualities of the plant. This pattern uses DK weight yarn and is best crocheted using a luscious, jewel-toned yarn.

  • The lace section uses a stitch pattern called Star Flower Lace and involves lots of working into slip stitches and chains.
  • Ch 7 counts as a (tr, ch 2).
  • The pattern can be adjusted in width using a chain multiple of 10 + 2 (the minimum being 20+2).
  • The pattern can be adjusted in length by repeating rows 4-5.
