Summer Rays Drop Stitch Wrap

from Linda Dean Crochet
(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Summer Rays Drop Stitch Wrap
Summer Rays Drop Stitch Wrap
Summer Rays Drop Stitch Wrap

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • basic crochet stitches (sc, hdc, dc)

Pattern Description:

The simple Drop Stitch creates an airy and elegant wrap, that only looks like you spent hours making hairpin lace. Make it as an easy dress up for a night out or a fun cover to keep the sun from your shoulders; this is a versatile addition to any wardrobe!

What inspired me to put this design together was actually the yarn. I had a skein, and I made it a personal challenge to see what I could create with it, and the Drop Stitch lends itself to this non-stretch yarn very well. The openness of the stitch with the smooth surface of the yarn, allows both to be featured in a positive way with this design, creating a classic style.
