Do you see those skeins of beautiful gradient yarns and just want to snap them up?  The Tidelands Wrap is designed to showcase the gradual color changes in fingering weight gradient yarn.  The wrap is versatile as well. You can wear it several different ways.  Pair it with both casual and dressy looks.  Because it is lightweight, you can wear it as an outer layer when it’s not too chilly.  On colder days, double it up and tuck it under a jacket or coat for a stunning and warm neck layer.  

Hi, I’m Suzanne, the designer behind Crafting Each Day.  I help crocheters create timeless baby gifts and stylish accessories to treat themselves and treasured loved ones.  I taught myself to crochet over 30 years ago.  It wasn’t long before I started tinkering with patterns and making my own designs.  One of the joys of crocheting is that it allows us to express our love for others through hand-made gifts.  Crafting Each Day supports crocheters in making treasured items, enjoying the process of crochet, and advancing their skills.

THE YARN


The sample was worked using approximately 4/5 of a skein of Scheepjes Whirl in colorway Mid Morning Mocharoo and approximately 1/3 of a skein of Scheepjes Whirlette in colorway Chocolat.  Scheepjes Whirl is a fingering weight yarn that gradually changes colors.  Using Scheepjes Whirl or another gradient yarn is recommended for the Main Color.  Another coordinating solid colored yarn is recommended for the Accent Color. The wrap alternates narrow bands in the solid color with larger crochet lace bands in the gradient yarn.

WHEN TO WEAR THE TIDELANDS WRAP


With its sophisticated-looking lace panels, the Tidelands Wrap can be worn for both dressy and casual occasions.  And, it can be arranged in several different ways.  Wrap it around your shoulders and and let it hang down.  Or, double-it over and throw it over your shoulders.  I also enjoy wearing it cinched around my neck with more casual outfits or underneath a jacket or coat. 

Because it is lightweight, the wrap works for different seasons.  When it isn’t too chilly, the wrap can be worn on its own as a lightweight outer layer.  On colder days, wear it around your neck and tuck it inside a jacket or coat.  In the spring and fall, it can provide an extra bit of warmth.  Depending on where you live, it can also work for cooler summer days or evenings.  By choosing your own favorite colorways, you can make it to go with a particular outfit.  Or choose a more neutral colorway for an accessory that will pair with many different looks.

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.

ABOUT THE PATTERN:


The Tidelands Wrap is appropriate for an advanced or adventurous beginner.  Using fingering weight yarn and making the lace panels may require some attention at first.  As the pattern repeats, it becomes easier.  The directions are for one size.  You can easily adjust the length to make it shorter or longer by reducing or adding to the number of rows (refer to “Size and Measurements” section).  The wrap can be worn year round – as a lightweight layer in warmer weather and tucked under a jacket or coat in colder weather.

MATERIALS NEEDED:


CROCHET HOOK:  

Size 3.5 mm / US: E/4 or size needed to obtain gauge

 

YARN:

Yarn used:

MC – Scheepjes Whirl (60% cotton, 40% acrylic), 1094 yd 1000 m/7.94 oz 225 g in #766 (Mid Morning Mocharoo) 4/5 skein.

AC – Scheepjes Whirlette (60% cotton, 40% acrylic), 498 yd 445 m/3.53 oz 100 g in #863 (Chocolate) 1/3 skein.

 

Yarn characteristics:

  • #1 super fine, fingering weight yarn.
  • 60 % cotton, 40 % acrylic

 

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

GAUGE:


Exact gauge is not critical for this pattern but can affect the final measurements and yardages.  Check gauge after row 9.  After row 9, the wrap should measure 18″ wide and 4″ long.  This pattern uses an open tension for the lace.  You may need to go up a hook size or more to achieve gauge. 

 

NOTES: 


  • This crochet pattern is written in US terms (more details).
  • Note that measurements are given as exact as possible. But crochet tension & technique might give variations in the result, that changes from person to person.  
  • Read pattern instructions carefully before beginning to make sure you understand everything. It might save you hours!
  • Check yarn info if you want to find an alternative or test your yarn against the gauge (more details). 
  • The lace stitches in MC Band #2 and MC Band #3 may tend to pull in a bit more than the MC Band #1 and the AC Bands.  Watch your tension on the lace stitches, and keep it loose.  If needed to maintain tension and gauge, you can also go up a hook size on MC Band #2 or MC Band #3. 
  • Because this is a loose-fitting wrap, getting exact gauge is not crucial, and you should go for the tension and drape that you desire. 
  • Blocking is highly recommended to open up the lace stitches. 
  • The beginning ch 2 on each row does not count as a stitch.

 

SIZE & MEASUREMENTS:


The wrap is 18″ wide and 64″ long.  You can easily adjust the length of the wrap be adding or removing rows
