1. Wrap is made from two rectangles. The first rectangle forms the back and one side of the wrap. The 2nd rectangle forms the other side of the wrap. After the first rectangle is worked, work on the 2nd rectangle begins by working stitches across one half of one long edge of the first rectangle.
2. To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over; yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color. Fasten off old color. Work over ends as work proceeds, to reduce number of ends to weave in when finishing.

This earthy, sculptural Classic Country Wrap has plenty of texture as well as organic beauty! I have to be honest and say that at first I wasn't crazy about the color combo, but it's seeped itself into my psyche and now I find it soothing and relaxing. The fact that it is made out of two rectangles lends itself to the country look. I agree Zeemer it is uncommon and that is what uniquely distinguishes it amongst the wrap patterns available!

I like the colors used in this Classic Country Wrap - subdued and earthy. I like the combination of pink, magenta, lilac accentuated by the green color. I'm currently crocheting scarves and Christmas skirts as new products in my online shop. This wrap be next in the production line. Cannot wait to make something not so common.

Wow this Classic Country Wrap is just Beautiful! The colors mix together nicely and look great together. I am so looking forward to making this one! After reading the written pattern and seeing the stitch chart I think I can make this. The cluster stitch is a new way of doing a cluster, but with the directions here on this page I think it will work and look great. I love learning new stitches! Looking forward to making this beautiful country wrap. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

I am a little confused with the new stitch. I wish someone would do a you tube video on the new stitch(es) and include the link for it somewhere in the pattern. I know I do better on stitches if I can see a video on how to do it. That way I can watch the video as often as I need to until I am comfortable doing the stitch. I am a person who does better watching how a stitch is done since the directions on the stitch sound Greek to me. I know I am not the only person like this.

Hi Sharon, We have plenty of cluster stitch tutorials on our site! There's a search bar at the top left of the page Feel free to search for cluster stitch in that search box to see what tutorials are there. There are even some video tutorials to help you out! Thanks, and I hope that helps! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Is there anyone who has made this beautiful wrap? I just love the look of it but am a little intimidated by what looks like quite a complicated design. Could you please tell me if it was terribly difficult to make? It looks so elegant and the design is very pretty indeed. I just know that if it is very difficult to make I will not finish the project and the half done wrap will be pushed into the craft closet with the collection of other things that I have not finished.

I made this with worsted #4 yarn, just because I needed it lighter for spring for my Momma in Law, It was easy after learning the new stitch and went faster than I expected. I used about 1 skein in each color but you should plan on more as you may not have the same tension as I do.

Could another weight yarn be used for this pattern? I am not a fan of bulky yarn.

Since it says to use a bulky or chunky yarn, my guess is that a smaller weight would be too thin for this particular pattern. It may be worth experimenting with. We also have several other wraps and some that use different yarn types: Thanks, Krista, Editor

I used a worsted #4 yarn it turned out lighter weight, but I needed that. So yes you can use a lighter weight yarn! If you want it wider just add 7 chains because it is a 7 plus 3 chain repeat pattern.

I do not want the preview everly time I want to print a pattern.

Hi jodeegeick, I don't understand your question. To print this pattern, simply highlight the pattern text you want to print, then right click and select Print. This should allow you to print only what you have highlighted. I hope that helps! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

thank you. I'm happy to know which yarn to look for. I Love, Love, Love this pattern.

This will be my late fall project - I found Red Heart Heads Up, a chunky wool-acrylic yarn in the best colors. I absolutely love this design and so many of her others.

Absolutely beautiful! But you'll have to find an alternate yarn because Caron no longer offers a bulky yarn. I wish allfreecrochet would have checked this before featuring this pattern.

This country wrap looks gorgeous. I want to make one for myself, but if it doesn't take too long, I might make it for my sisters for Christmas. Love it!
