The Lettuce Wrap is perfect for spring or summer (or anytime of the year). Something that was lacy and lightweight but still warm. We’ve all gone for a walk in the park and its too hot long sleeves but too cool for short sleeves. I needed to make something that would work for that type of weather, but it needed to be fashionable.

Spring Fashion Blog Hop

This pattern was featured in the E’Claire Makery Spring Fashion Blog Hop in March 2020. Each day a different designer offered a free PDF download of their pattern. There were shawls, wraps, scarves, earrings, cardigans, hats, and sweaters.

The Pattern

I love the look of the “double v-stitch” and wanted to use it in this design. I grabbed some yarn from my stash and after a few days work and a skein later, I didn’t like the results. First, I wouldn’t have enough yarn to finish the project. Second, the stitches were pulling on each other, so there wasn’t great drape and was wonky.

What did work?

The pattern was great and just what I was looking for, I just needed to make a slight adjustment. The results… AMAZING!!!!!

The Yarn

After a trip to a local craft store and feeling and squishing all the yarn, I decided on Lion Brand’s Baby Soft in the colorway Sage/Sweetpea. The store has it listed as one color but the company has it listed as another, either way its the same.

Baby Soft is a light worsted weight yarn, or baby weight. The fiber contents are 60% acrylic and 40% Nylon.

The “Lettuce Wrap” kept me warm during the photo shoot. It was chilly and breezy spring-like winter day in New England.

  1. I found you through the Eclairemakery blog hop. This wrap looks good enough to eat!!! I have a plan for who will get one already (besides me!!).

    Thank you for sharing your pattern!

    1. You need to go to the E’Claire Makery post and scroll down to my pattern for the code.

  2. I so love the lettuce wrap and was thinking of making one for my friend in Florida for the winter months when it does get chilly down there. I missed out on getting the pattern on riveraly and looked on ur page and wouldn’t only follow ur on the pattern on Pinterest so is there anyway that I can get the pattern. If not I totally understand.
    Thanks
    Merry
