Summer's Night Infinity Wrap

Have you ever been to the store and seen yarn that you HAD to buy?  It doesn't happen to me very often, I can usually talk myself down from it, but not yesterday.  I am walking down a yarn isle, looking for yarn for a future project, when these vibrant colors catch my eye.  Without thinking, I put the yarn in my basket and continued on my way. 
What ended up in my cart was Yarn Bee Aurora Borealis Twist in Fruit Punch.  Even the name sounds fun!
These pictures don't do the colors justice.  It was hard to get my daughter to stay still for the pictures.  She was much more interested in playing!

I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it at first, but it hit me this morning....I'll make a wrap for my daughter!
I sat down with my hook and had this wrap finished in less than an hour!

What you will need:
N hook
Worsted weight (4)  I used Yarn Bee Aurora Borealis Twist in Fruit Punch
Scissors
Yarn needle
Stitch marker (optional)

Abbreviations:
Ch-chain
St/st's- stitch/stitches
Dc- double crochet


This pattern is written for a small child size.  The size can easily be adjusted, by adding or subtracting from your ch.  I would suggest taking a measurement around the shoulders and chaining to that length.

Ch 40
Join chain, being careful not to twist the chain.
Ch 2, 1 dc in each ch around.  (you may want to place a stitch marker here to make finding the center easier.)

When you have made your way around the ch, you will twist your work, so you are now working in the bottom of the chain.

When you have come back around, (You will now be working into the actual stitch for the remainder of the project.)  you will continue doing 1 dc in each st until you reach your desired length.

I did 7 rows on each side of the ch, though it’s not so important to have each side even.  It won’t change the look of the piece.  That is just where I ended up stopping.
The wrap can double as an infinity cowl, as well!!

  1. I'm not sure I understand your pattern. I saw where you turned it and crocheted into the bottom of the chain and got that. Got that you did seven rows there, but not sure about when you said you had 7 rows on "each" side of the chain. Do you have to re-attach the yarn to go to the other side of the chain?

    1. No, you don't need to reattach the yarn. Because of the twist in the work, it will work continuously around. Each time around will be working a different "side" of the original chain.
      Did that make sense?
      Sorry I didn't explain further in the pattern. :)
