As promised to those of you who saw me wearing a version of my Boho Wrap at Vogue Knitting Live in Chicago, here’s the pattern! This project is a great one to earmark for gifts because even though it’s a larger piece, it’s so open-weave that it whips up in a snap! The Boho Wrap is made using my newest yarn, Sheep(ish) Stripes, a self-striping yarn-turned-variegated when used with triple crochet stitches. Get it now at Jo-Ann, A.C. Moore and select independent stores, or anytime on Yarnspirations.com!

Tassels: (Make 14)
Cut 6, 30”/76 cm strands of yarn. Holding strands together, fold in half. Insert hook through the right-side of the edge of wrap and lay yarn at folded point over the hook. Pull the yarn through, from back to front, just enough to create a loop. Set aside crochet hook and use your hands to fold loop over edge of project and pull ends of yarn through loop. Pull until taught.
Attach 7 Tassels evenly across each Wrap end.
