Harvest Moon Wrap

My favorite season is almost upon us, so I decided to create and release a pattern for a super-cozy wrap that can be made just in time for that crisp autumn air. This wrap is so simple to make and it’s so very versatile, I hope you love it as much as I do!

Harvest Moon Wrap


Pattern: Harvest Moon Wrap

Skill Level: Easy+


WHAT YOU’LL NEED

  • 5 balls- #4 Worsted Weight yarn in the perfect pumpkin-y orange  (MC)
  • 1 ball – #4 Worsted Weight yarn in a light cream color (CC)
  • Size K (6.5 mm) hook- I know most #4 yarns call for an I-9 (5.5 mm) hook, but since we want the fabric to have a lot more drape, I found going up about 2 sizes is perfect! (Be sure to still check your gauge to find which hook size will work best for you with the yarn you choose)
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
  • Tassel maker or something to make tassels (I just used a dvd case, but you can use a book, cardboard or something similar)

 

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS

Height (point to edge):  approx. 33”

Width (excluding tassels): approx. 74”

Tassels: I made 6” tassels, but if you’d like to make smaller or larger tassels, it’s up to you!

12 sts x 6 rows = 4” in pattern
