So a few weeks ago I released a pattern for my Freesia Top using Lion Brand ZZ Twist yarn. I just loved the look of this yarn so much that I wanted to create another pattern using this yarn. I chose to make a simple wrap that is so pretty yet so easy!
I chose a gorgeous Ecru color for this wrap. I thought it would be nice to throw something on that can match with any piece you have in your wardrobe. You can wear it to a wedding or you can wear it with a pair of jeans and a tank on cool nights.
The stitch sequence of this wrap is quite simple and consists of the granny stripe stitch and other various stitches. I decided to add some open stitch work with double crochets to create more visual interest.
This wrap is so lightweight that you can even wear it as a scarf! This pattern would also work well with a light cotton. The fringe adds a nice touch as well. Of course the fringe is optional…I just love fringe!
I chose to name this wrap the Yarrow wrap because the Yarrow flower is so delicate and pretty. Something about the granny stripe reminded me of the petals.
I really hope you like this pattern. Enjoy!

Blocking and adding Fringe:
Bind off and weave in all ends. Next, block your wrap. You may notice some stretching after blocking.
After you block your wrap, attach yarn to one of the corners of the wrap and make sc’s around the border of your wrap. This will give your work a cleaner edge.
You will notice that the longer sides of the wrap will not be straight, even after blocking. The sides will take on more of a wavy look.
Add fringe to shorter sides if desired.
Thank you so much for following along with this pattern. I really hope you enjoy your wrap!
