Poudreuse means powder snow in French. That’s what this wrap reminds me of. The yarn is so light and fluffy and the very light blue color is nearly the blue of ice in the mountains.

The poudreuse wrap is an easy biased wrap in 2 yarn colors. Only simple stitches are used as well as the bead stitch for some added texture and just a little twist (fully explained below don’t worry).

You can wear it as a wrap on your shoulders or as a giant scarf. The simple, yet elegant designs dresses up any outfit in no time.

The Yarn


The Poudreuse Wrap is made with Zeeman Julia yarn. This is a chunky soft blend yarn (20% wool, 80% acrylic). I’ve used two complementary shades of blue for this striped crochet pattern, but you can make it with any color combination you like.

Because the yarn I used is not available everywhere, and I know how painful it is to try to find equivalent yarn which will give you the same effect I have selected a few equivalent yarns for you.

WHEN TO WEAR THE POUDREUSE WRAP?


Because of it’s simple, yet elegant design, it’s big comfy size and soft yarn the Poudreuse Wrap can be worn for many occasions.

You can wear it at home as a scarf blanket when you snuggle in front of the fireplace or watch a good show (Grey’s Anatomy for me please!).

You can wear it as a giant scarf on cold winter days.

You can wear it on your shoulders, as the elegant wrap it is, over a cute dress to go out. I’m always freezing when I decide to wear a cute dress for date night, no more with my Poudreuse Wrap.

You can wear it at work as a cover-up when the aircon is too cold.

I could go on and on but I think you get the idea, you can wear it anytime (ok maybe not if you go sunbathing on the beach).

How Long Does It Take To Crochet That?


How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

Materials Needed

  • 9 mm / US: M/N – 13 / UK: 00
  • 5 Bulky yarn. 3 skeins (approx 510m / 560 yards) in the main color and 1.5 skeins (approx 260m / 285 yards) in the contrasting color. I used Zeeman Julia yarn in light blue (main color) and denim blue (contrasting color). This is a soft yarn with a 20% wool and 80% acrylic blend. Find equivalents in the “Yarn” section.
  • Tapestry needle to weave in the ends. Find one here (if you don’t already have one)!

Gauge


The gauge is not very important for this pattern. In alternating rows of sc and dc stitches, 8 rows x 11 stitches for a 10cm by 10cm square (4” by 4” square).

Notes 


  • This crochet pattern is written in US terms.
  • Repeat instructions between * * the indicated number of times or until the end of the row.
  • The turning chain ch1 and ch2 do not count as stitches throughout the pattern. I use a turning ch2 for dc stitches as it gives me a neater edge.
  • When changing color, the turning ch1 or ch2 at the end of the previous row should be done in the new color. For better readability, this is not mentioned throughout the pattern.

Size & Measurements


The wrap is 2m25 long and 50cm wide. You can easily adjust the width by adding/removing a multiple of 2 stitches to the starting chain. To adjust the length you can just add or remove rows.

Abbreviations

We try our best to include all crochet abbreviations in the list above for the crochet pattern, but sometimes we may forget one or two.

Learn more about crochet abbreviations & find a complete list on our Crochet Abbreviations & Terms post.

Stitches You Will Need 


The bead stitch is similar to a puff stitch but done horizontally. It’s worked up around a dc stitch.

Bead stitch = dc stitch, *yo around the dc stitch post, pull up a loop* repeat 3 times, yo and pull through the next 6 loops on the hook. This leaves 2 loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull through the remaining 2 loops. The bead stitch has a width of 2 stitches.

Techniques You Will Need 


Increase in dc stitch = Make 2 dc stitches in the same stitch

Decrease in dc stitch = To decrease in double crochet, work the first double crochet until only 2 loops are on the hook. Yarn over, place hook in next stitch, yarn over, pull through stitch, yarn over, pull through 2 loops (3 loops on hook). Yarn over, pull yarn through all 3 loops for a completed decrease.
