Let's talk about sizing a bit...the wrap can easily customized simply by working more (or less) rows to change the height and width of the piece.

Here are the dimensions I achieved, but again, you can easily change it up a bit.

Let's talk about sizing...our wrap is a long and narrow triangle with a tassel at one end.  Please note all sizes are approximate and can vary due to your personal tension, yarn substitutions and hook substitutions.

  • 31 inches across top edge
  • 54 inches down the left side
  • 54 inches down the right side
  • Tassel is about 4 inches tall



Instructions for the Wrap:

Ch 7

Row 1: Work a (dc, ch 1, dc) in the 4th ch from the hook.  Then work a (dc, ch 1, dc) in the last ch.

Row 2: Ch 3 and turn.  In the first V of the row (ch 1 space) work (dc, ch 1, dc).  Repeat for each V (ch 1 space) across.  Work a (dc, ch 1, dc) into the turning chain space to finish the row.

Optional: At this point you can place a stitch marker into that last V of the row just worked so you know which side to work your increase on.

Row 3: Ch 3 and turn.  Work a (dc, ch 1, dc) into the first V and in ch V across.  To finish off the row, work a dc into the turning chain space.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until your wrap is as long and wide as you'd like it to be.  Se sizing information above more more info.
