Free Pattern: Iced Gem Crochet Wrap

iced gem crochet pattern by Slugs on the Refrigerator

This sweet little wrap originally appeared in Simply Crochet Issue 13. Its a take on a basic ripple pattern, but uses varying heights of stitches to create the wrap shape of narrower at the top and wider around the shoulders. Its designed for a 4ply yarn, but you could really make it in any yarn and adjust the number of row repeats for a wider wrap.  Its also easily made longer, but simply chaining additional stitches in multiples of 17.

The design is worked out in 2 parts from the beginning chain at the centre of the back, which creates a gorgeous ripple effect running down the back of the wrap. Its easily one of my favourite designs of last year.

The only tricky stitch is the Front Post Single Crochet (raised double crochet front). I'll have a tutorial on the blog on monday to help anyone who may struggle with this awesome little stitch. 

Its currently free to download here for the US version and here for the UK version exclusively on Slugs for the next wee while!! 

Happy Crocheting!
