Spider Stitch Crochet Wrap – Stole – Shawl

money_shot

This gorgeous wrap/shawl/stole is perfect for those not so warm summer evenings. It is light and airy but not too wispy. It has a cottony texture with a subtle sheen, and it’s perfect for those evening walks along the beach. It would also be warm enough for the autumn.

The yarn used for this project was found in my yarn stash; five balls of unidentified yarn in variegated shades of pink, oatmeal and brown. Unfortunately, there was no information on the balls of yarn. I therefore, have no idea of the manufacture or type. It is variegated both in colour and texture. It is a mixture of cotton and man-made fibre, each ball weighs 100 grams, and all five balls were used to make this project.

I chose to use the spider stitch/design….

There are many variations on the spider stitch/design, but I chose the version shown in the tutorial below, because it is simple and not overly fussy looking.

As usual, I worked a swatch to determine the appropriate hook size and the size of the finished item. I also decided that I preferred the design facing the opposite way to that shown in the video. I therefore worked horizontally across the length of the wrap, instead of vertically as shown in the video.

The design: Worked over multiples of 6 cells plus 1
Wrap measures: 74”x 26” (not blocked)
Yarn Type: Unknown
Needles: 3.50mm crochet hook.

I did not want elaborate edging or a fringe, so I finished the edges by simply working two single crochet in every chain space, and five single crochet in every corner around the edge.

The finished project looks beautiful, and is equally suitable for a semi-formal or casual occasion. The colour is absolutely fabulous with denim!
