The Sunset Wrap is made with an entire skein of Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball, giving this simple fabric a gorgeous ombre look. 

Easily made with simple stitches, you’ll quickly create a gorgeous accessory that’s fun to wear. This pattern is worked in rows using chains, single, and double crochet stitches. The border is optional, and gives a really lovely scalloped edge.

In addition to the written instructions, you can follow the stitch chart to follow every step and successfully make your own Sunset Wrap. 

You can easily customize the size of the piece by adding or omitting rows, and the simple pattern repeat makes this design fun and easy to work up! 

The Sunset Wrap is a great pattern because:

  • If you can make a blanket, you can make a wrap!
  • Wraps are quick and fun projects to work up!
  • You can easily substitute yarn fibers and colors to make this simple fabric your own style!
  • You’ll get to practice a lot of crochet skills: working in rows, stitch tension, gauge & size, border, blocking, finishing techniques & more!
