Lacy Summer Wrap

We’ve all been out on a summer night and there’s a chill in the air. The Lacy Summer Wrap will be your new favorite accessory for those outings!

When I think of places you’ll need to wear the Lacy Summer Wrap I picture a girls night at a local winery/brewery; sitting around having fun, sans kids and hubby, and just having a relaxing evening with some of your closest friends.

The Lacy Summer Wrap would be perfect addition to a LBD (Little Black Dress). You’re picturing it now too!

The Yarn

The yarn I used is the gorgeous Whirl from Scheepjes. This was my first time using this particular brand and it was a dream to work with. I now know what the big fuss is about.

I’ve had the cake sitting around for a while… well over a year. It was just waiting for the right design to come around. I was hesitant about using the cake because I didn’t want to waste it. The Lacy Summer Wrap is the perfect design for this yarn and am amazed by how it turned out.

Supplies

The supplies you’ll need to make your own Lacy Summer Wrap are:

– 1000 yards of Scheepjes Whirl – I used the colorway Lavenderlicious. This can be purchased at LoveCrafts and the Scheepjes website.

Measuring tape
Yarn needle
Stitch markers
Blocking materials
Scissors

You will need to block your finished Lacy Summer Wrap to help show off the stitch work.

Kind Hearted Tote

I enjoyed making my Darling Bag so much that I wanted to make another bag again. This time I wanted something smaller that would work as a project bag.

If you know me you know that I have a collection of bags SO MANY BAG, so many! I collect 3 things mostly; yarn, candles, and bags.

I would label this bag beginner friendly. As long as you can count you’ll be able to handle making the Kind Hearted Tote.

Magnolia Top

Do you ever purchase yarn and then hoard it until the perfect ideas or project comes along? That’s what happened with the Magnolia Top. I purchased the yarn back in early 2020, if not late 2019.

When planning out my Summer 2021 designs I remembered that I had this yarn stashed away and it would be perfect for the idea I had. The colors of the yarn reminded me of Magnolia trees in the spring.

Stitch Definition:

Starting Double Crochet – (also known as Long Chain Double
Crochet or Chainless Starting Double Crochet.) Pull up your loop to the height of your usual Double Crochet. Yarn over, insert into the 1st St, yarn over, pull through the Stitch, yarn over, pull through two loops on the hook, yarn over, pull through the remaining two loops on your hook.

My favorite technique for this is the one found here from Moogly:
How to Crochet: Improved Chainless Starting Double Crochet (Right Handed) – YouTube

Pattern Notes:

XS – 30” bust; S – 34”; M – 38”; L – 42”; XL – 46”; 2X – 50”; 3X – 54”; 4X – 58”.

Pattern is written in American Crochet Terms.

1” of positive ease for final measurement.

Ch 3 can be substituted for SDc.

Construction consists of: working the body in turned rounds from the bottom up & two panels for the upper body to form armholes.

Sizes – Pattern is worked in size XS
with additional sizes in parentheses. I advise starting a
new skein/ball to do the back panel, just in case you need to add
to the front panel for a proper fit.

Size/Bust/Approximate Yardage:

XS – 30” – 700;
S – 34” – 750;
M – 38” – 800;
L – 42” – 850;
XL – 46” – 900;
2X – 50” – 950;
3X – 54” – 1000;
4X – 58” – 1100.
