I really enjoyed crocheting this wrap/shrug thing. It’s nicely oversized, which is exactly what I was aiming at so I can use it as a wrap or put my arms through the sleeves, and throw it off quickly if I get too warm.
I crocheted the back from the bottom up and then did a bit of shaping as I split it into the two fronts so the neck isn’t just straight.
After it was all crocheted, I did a round of double crochet around the bottom and front to finish it off.
I also did the same around the armholes, followed by two rounds of rib, done by working alternate stitches into the front post.
I love the stripes, which I got the idea for from here. I’d definitely use that method again.
It’s lovely and warm and snuggly and is perfect for when I’m sitting in bed with a book.
