My best type of wrap, so soft and warm and cuddly looking. Here in Cape Town, South Africa, the daytime temperatures are dropping steadily as winter draws nearer so we are beginning to reach for wraps and shawls. I love the interesting look of the slightly open work pattern which is rated Easy so is great for evening crochet during my working week. Caron yarns are not available in South Africa but if I cannot find them online I will use an equivalent.

What a very, very nice wrap pattern we have in the "Simply Soft Afternoon Wrap". I think the color combination is absolutely perfection. I like that the design is striped, but not evenly striped. I like the sort of random effect the designer has given us. It looks like it would keep me warm and cozy! The Caron Simply Soft is inexpensive and is often on sale at that craft store that starts with an "M".

I am going to make this next year to replace the blanket I am using at work. i don't have any Carson Simply Soft yarn. What size skeins were used for this pattern? Thanks

The Caron SImply Soft skeins are probably 4oz. Maybe 3.5oz.

Made this for my daughter in law...just changed a few of the colors. She loves it!

Finally, a BIG wrap! I cant wait to make this! I don't have the exact colors, but I have plenty of Caron Simply Soft. I will upload a picture when finished.
