This is a very interesting design of a wrap. Green is not my color at all and I almost skipped right over this just because of that. I am glad I took the time to read the directions. This will be a unique piece to add to my growing collection. Thank you for the pattern and a second picture would have been a great idea.

This is such a unique item. I wish there were more pictures so that I could get a better look at the finished project. This is the first time I have run across this stitch. I kinda like it.

So very trendy and modern looking! Vickie Howell comes up with the best designs that really speak to me. I like the neutral and understand "Forest Floor" Caron Simply Soft yarn. I like the asymmetry of it. Now, personally, I have not heard of the bullion stitch, but I read how it is done and it seems like a fun stitch to make. It would be quite satisfying to complete this project!

I am attracted to this Bullion Stitch Whirlwind Wrap for its unique design - asymmetrical sleeves, then the other side just attached with a clasp. I think however that this will look wonderful when made a little bigger and in a different color. Well it's up to you. Thanks for the pattern. Cheers!

The one stitch on earth I cannot do......the boullion stitch!

Love love love this pattern soooooo cute

Please explain where the clips are

For printing without all the extraneous stuff, try www.printwhatyoulike.com, it's a very helpful site for crochet patterns. :)

Looking at the picture, it appears that one fastener is at the two top corners; is the other one at the bottom corners? This looks like a wrap for Florida, where sometimes you just need something on your arms. Never done bullion stitch before, but I'm always looking for something new to do.

I think it's cool -- I'm just trying to figure out HOW you're wearing it . . . LOL. I think I will attempt it. Thanks.

I made this pattern and I just want everyone to know that even though it was my first try at the "bouillon" stitch, it actually came out quite well. No, I am not that talented, but the instructions and the tutorial on Ms. Howell's/Caron site were very helpful. I used a weird yarn (looked like an old T-shirt) I had, and despite the sometimes difficult twist on the stitch, the drape and finished product was a succes. My daughter loves it. As far as printing the instructions, why not try the folks at Caron Yarn or Ms. Howel's site? Lovely project even for novices like myself!

Hi, everyone. If you use your mouse to highlight the pattern before clicking File>Print, and then click "Selection" instead of "All" under Print Range, only the highlighted text will print. Alternatively, you can always copy and paste the pattern into a blank Word document and print that way. Hope that helps! --Editors of AllFreeCrochet

After 3 tries still cannot print out all the directions. Page one prints the picture only.

I like the look of this. Cannot figure out how to print the directions without getting all the other stuff on page.

Why don't you show the other ways to wear this?

The picture of the shrug isn't pretty at all! I wouldn't crochet it!

To each their own, keep it to yourself. If you don't like it, don't make it!
