New Free Crochet Pattern: Boho Wrap!
Project reprinted, courtesy of Crafts n’ Things Magazine.
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!

Pull until taught.
Attach 7 Tassels evenly across each Wrap end.
I am so loving this boho wrap, Vickie!!!
Thank you so much, Nikki!
Can’t wait to make this; I live in South Texas, so for me, this could take the place of a jacket in the wintertime. Love the new striped Sheep(is); I’m making a 2013 temperature scarf with solid-color Sheep(ish) and thought it might be break-y, like some roving, but it’s soft and sturdy!
I live in Austin, so I know just what you mean! 😉
Glad you’re making the temperature scarf in Sheep(ish). That’s something I *meant* to do too,…but it just never happened.
I’m not a great crocheter, but I can follow this pattern, and the result is stunning. Thanks for a great SoCal-weight wrap!
Oh, I’m so glad! I grew up in So-cal (Torrance), so I know exactly what you mean about the weight for the weather. 🙂
Vickie, I just love this wrap! I am on my 3rd one now. Unfortunately, I am allergic to wool, so I’m trying to find a yarn that is comparable. I also would like to have a wrap or shawl that is fancier for dress up. I was thinking on a finer yarn for the Boho. Do you have any suggestions on those ideas? I just love your patterns. <3
Vickie, I just love your pattern. The only issue I have is I’m allergic to wool. Is there another Yarn that you would suggest?
Any worsted-weight blend (although I’d stay away from cotton for this particular project) could work. 🙂 Thanks, Lisa!
At the beginning is it 72 stitches or more
Hi, was perusing the web and found this page and pattern. I am pretty new to crochet, but for a wrap, the Ch 72 at the beginning seems way too short. I realize this is an older pattern and post, but if there’s anyone out there paying attention…I’d sure love the help. Am I missing something??
Thanks in advance…I really love this but don’t want to get started and realize it’s too short.
Hi Melissa. I thought the same thing but the chain 72 is the width, not the length. At the end of the pattern, you can repeat rows 4-7 to get the desired length you’d like:)
