As part of my re-found love of kidsilk blend yarn I have designed another wrap. This is Cloud Line Wrap:
It uses 4 balls of Rowan Kidsilk Haze, but any kidsilk blend yarn would work and you could mix and match them as I mentioned in this blog post. It is designed to have an inbuilt fringe so that you have no ends to sew, which is a deliberate bonus! The yarn is so fine that the fringe needs something extra to give it substance and I thought there would be no better way than to add some beads because this also adds a touch of glamour.
I used 4 balls in my stash – colours Jelly, Liquer, Steel and Fern. And I used approx. 100 lime green silver lined size 6/0 beads. The wrap is approx. 220cm by 45cm (excluding fringe) and weighs only 100g. The beads go so well with the colours, especially the Jelly colour, and I have 2 balls of Jelly left in my stash so I may well make another – did I mention it’s a great stashbuster?
The pattern costs £3 and can be found on Ravelry and LoveCrochet. It is written in UK and US terms, and has some photos to help with the beaded fringe.
I would love to see this is other colourways – which colours would you choose?
Happy crocheting xxx
