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:
Worsted weight (4) I used Yarn Bee Aurora Borealis Twist in Fruit Punch
Stitch marker (optional)
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.
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.
|Where to place your first stitch after twisting your work|
1 dc in each bottom ch around.
|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.
|Coming back around begin working in the top of the stitches|
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!!
