This crochet wrap and crochet shawl hybrid is your ultimate layering piece!
Versatile enough to throw on over a t-shirt on a summer’s evening or wrap warmly over a knitted roll neck in the winter. The tie waist, which fits through the slits created in the stitch pattern gives the option to cinch in the waist (or you could even replace it with a thin belt) to keep things looking stylish. It would look equally striking in vibrant brights – perfect for a fun festival summer cover up… or even pastels for a touch of warmth on a spring day.
Featuring a super addictive stitch pattern, with enough variety to keep things interesting, but enough repeats that after a few rows you won’t have to check the pattern every 5 minutes! The Aran yarn also means that for a sizeable wrap you can crochet it fairly quickly.

The name ‘Brook Wrap’ was inspired by the stitch pattern, its undulating ridges and waves reminded me of a brook winding its way through the landscape, equally at home reflecting the sunrise on a cold frosty morning or as a welcome spot to cool down on a hot summer day.
