The yarn used for this wrap isn’t the easiest. You need to stitch quite loosely and you have to use feel most of the time instead of sight. It is well worth the end result. Try to count the stitches in every row to ensure that you have the correct number. The stitch count is the important thing.
I was able to find this yarn at Wool Warehouse. They ship to the US at reasonable rates and wonderful, friendly service.
This pattern works perfectly fine for a scarf as well.
Row 1: Ch 40, sc in second ch from hook and in each remaining ch, turn: 39 sc.
Row 2: Ch 1, BLsc (see Special Stitches above) in first sc, [FLsc (see Special Stitches above) in next sc, BLsc in next sc] to last 2 sc, FLsc in next sc, working in both loops, regular sc in last sc, turn: 39 sc.
Rep row 2 until desired length (about 60 inches), fasten off.
Weave in all ends securely.
Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. You can, of course, view, print, paste to a word processor, convert to PDF, etc. on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out, if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
