This post is all about how to crochet a shawl wrap and lap blanket all in one!
I am SO EXCITED to bring you this fun, dual-purpose design....for free!! This crochet wrap pattern was a collaboration project with my friend Melanie from The Pinecone Project. She made my yarn dreams come true and created not one, but two gorgeous colorways for this design. If you are interested in a kit, please visti her website here.
2 Purposes from One Design!
You can use this free crochet shawl pattern as a wrap or a lap blanket! I designed this so even if you need to work out of the home or run errands, you can take the comforts of home wherever you go. We could all use a soft, snuggly blanket wrapped around us, am I right?
It has a slightly open stitch pattern, which makes it perfect for any season. The worsted weight yarn makes it suitable for the colder months and the stitch design is airy enough to be comfortable during the spring and summer.
A Little About the Yarn...
The kits come in two different colorways: Fern (left) and Crocus (right). I used Fern for my finished crochet wrap, but I love them both so much! I'm definitely hoping some of you choose the crocus colorway so I can see it all worked up!
This is a hand dyed worsted weight yarn, 100% superwash merino. Which basically means that it is super soft.
I never would have had the chance to come up with this design without my friend Melanie, who trusted me with her beautiful yarn. Thank you so much Melanie!
