Cranberry Chill Wrap

winter cranberry wrap

Well hello there!

Today, I’d like to share a new pattern with you…

The Cranberry Chill Wrap!

This wrap is so stinkin’ easy and beginner friendly. It’s basically a giant rectangle.

The most difficult part is the cluster stitch and I’ve created a great little photo tutorial just to make it even easier! You can find that tutorial here.

If you refer to the photo tutorial for the cluster stitch, the only part you need to concern yourself with is the part showing how to work a cluster. Ignore the row of single crochet or repeated cluster stitches to form a row. I just wanted you to see how the cluster stitch itself is done.

Other than the cluster stitch, you will be crocheting the V-stitch (dc, ch 1, dc) and single crochets. Even the shell stitch border is a breeze.

Now this wrap measures 88″ long, which was long on me and I’m 5’8″.

For you shorter women, I would suggest not adding as many rows. Trust me, it won’t affect the pattern at all since it is just a four row repeat and you won’t need as much yarn…bonus! To make it easier to work a border, I would suggest ending on a Row 5, which is a row of only single crochets.

This elegant wrap will look stunning when paired with an evening dress or a simple pair of jeans! It’s an easy pattern and you can customize the length and colors to your own specifications—or someone else’s if you are giving it as a gift.

I also think this would make a great craft fair item! Just don’t forget to credit the designer if you’re selling online please.

Notes:

  • This wrap measures 88” long, which is pretty long, even for a tall person. Each 4 row repeat of the pattern measures about 1 ¾”. If you’d like to make the wrap shorter, stop working when the wrap measures your desired length. I recommend stopping on a Row 5 in the pattern for a neater appearance.
  • There are more Greybeard stripes because I wanted to begin and end with the same color.

Border

cranberry chill wrap

***Be sure to read all of the border directions before you begin. Essentially, you will be working the pattern of *single crochet, skip 2 stitches, shell stitch, skip 2 stitches* and repeat around the entire perimeter of the wrap, with a modified shell (7 dc) at each corner.

With Graphite

Attach Graphite in third st from any corner (working away from that corner, not towards). Sc, *sk 2 sts, shell st in next st (see special stitches), sk 2 sts, sc in next st.* Repeat from * to * across until there are 3 stitches left before the next corner. Sk 2 sts. In the corner and all in the same stitch, 7 dc. Working along the next edge, sk 2 sts, sc in next st and continue working the shell border pattern along the edge until you come to the next corner where you will work 7 dc in the corner st. Continue working this pattern along all four edges. Sl st into the first sc you made of the border.

Finish off. Weave in end.

Note: I did have to fudge the border a little since the stitches did not work out evenly. A few sides (at the end of the sides just before a corner) had 2 stitches left or 4 stitches left. I just went with it, pretending like there were three. As long as your corner stitches end up in the actual corners, it will be fine to miss a stitch or skip an extra stitch. Just don’t skip 5 or more because your wrap will start to pucker.

Note: (Optional) You also have the option to single crochet around the entire perimeter before the shell stitch border if you find that it would be easier to see what stitch you will be working into. Just (sc, ch 1, sc) in each corner and single crochet evenly around the rest. When working the corner shell, crochet into ch-1 sp of the corner made from your row of sc.

  1. Hi! I’m a bit confused your instructions call for repeats of rows 2 thru 5. Which means v-stitch row, cluster row, sc row, sc row then changing color after X amount of repeats. This means changing color after 2 rows of sc. Starting the new color as the v-stitch.
    Your pictures show the color change happening with row 5, the second row of sc.
    Which is it supposed to be?

    I am going to do mine as the pix show. I think starting and ending the repeats with the sc gives a cleaner look. Plus it makes hiding the ends simple!
    I just wanted to make you aware of the discrepancy so you could fix it for the less experienced crocheter.

  2. Can you make special order For one of your scarfs.Im want a particular scarf made? Looking forward to hearing back. Thanks

    1. Hi Clarissa! The foundation chain is simply your beginning chain at the base of the project that you will be crocheting your first row of instructions into. So for this pattern, you will chain 79 and that is your foundation or starting base. The Row 1 of single crochets will be worked along this starting chain. It sounds more technical than it really is. I hope this helps, but if you have any more questions, please feel free to ask! Thank you!
