The Flower Patch Button Wrap is a lacy, airy, and versatile piece that can be worn in lots of different ways. Wear it as a wrap, a shawlette, a cowl, or a mini scarf! Two buttons help secure it in place and lacy holes from the stitch pattern create natural buttonholes. Perfect to wear when you need something pretty to throw over your shoulders for any season!
Flower Patch Button Wrap
By Jennifer Dickerson
- 6.0 mm (J) hook
- 1 Skein Araucania Toconao Multy, 139 yards, Aran Weight (Wrap as shown used the entire skein, if making yours longer, please adjust yarn amounts)
- 2 Buttons (Be sure they fit through holes before sewing them on, buttons shown are 1 inch wide)
- Tapestry needle
- Width-7 inches wide
- Length-wrap as shown is 36 inches long, but make any length desired by adding more rows.
Row 1: In the 6th chain from the hook, work 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in the same chain. Skip five chains and work 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in the same chain. Repeat this sequence until you reach the last 4 chains. Skip three chains, and in the last chain, work a dc.
Row 2: Ch 3, turn and work 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in each of the chain 2 spaces from the previous row (center of each v-shaped cluster). At the end of the row, finish with a dc (the chain 3 turning space from the previous row).
Repeat row 2 until wrap is desired length. If you will be wearing your garment as a wrap, be sure to wrap it around yourself before finishing for best fit.
Weave in ends and sew buttons as shown below. I sewed them to the starting edge because I wanted the scalloped edge on the other end (formed by the stitch pattern) to show when buttoned. Be sure to slip buttons through the holes before sewing to be sure they'll fit.
(Block lightly if desired)
I used a yarn scrap to attach the buttons to the wrap so it would match too...
Here are two more ways to wear the wrap...
as a loose and light cowl,
Or as an around the shoulders wrap too!
Here's another view of it flat on a table too:
