Wraps by the Dozen
Sometimes you need just a little bit of extra warmth, but not enough for a jacket. Create a wardrobe of versatile wraps, and you'll have a fabulous accessory for any outfit. In Wraps by the Dozen by Judith A Thompson and Carla Rae Miller, you will find 12 crochet wrap patterns, in a variety of designs. All would be perfect for yourself, as a prayer shawl, or as a sweet gift of friendship.
All of the patterns in this book are easy to work, as they are made with worsted weight yarn. Leisure Arts has even provided great bonus online tutorials to help the novice crocheter successfully create a wonderful piece that they'll be proud of.
We are particularly fond of these simple patterns because they are all symmetric in how they are created. You will always have either matching edges or matching edges, making for a sophisticated wrap that will look stunning no matter how you decide to wear it.
If you're in need of a simple shawl to knit as a gift, any of these patterns will help you make a beautiful wrap the recipient will cherish for years to come.
