Simple Shells Light Wrap Crochet Pattern

Hi all. I wanted to share a recent creation I made.

Sometimes you find the pattern and get a yarn to match. But this time around it was the yarn that inspired my Simple Shells Light Wrap. Let me fill you in on where I acquired this magical yarn.

Every box has a variety of yarns of various fiber contents and I was lucky enough to receive one. I even did a little unboxing video to share with everyone what types of yarns came in my box. I want to talk more about my creation. But before I do, go ahead and check out all the goodies I received. 

So, if you haven’t guessed, I decided to use the Ava yarn from Classic Elite Yarns. It’s a beautiful metallic silver yarn; a blend of viscose, wool and polyester. Right off the bat, I had a vision for this particular yarn.

And that’s how the Simple Shells Light Wrap came into being. This wrap is really delicate and simple to make. It uses the shell stitch which, paired with the subtle metallic yarn, adds a beautiful textural wave to the wrap.  

It’s a lightweight wrap to take on vacations with you or for mild weather. It can also be worn in a variety of ways, so it would be a beautiful holiday gift.

Throw it over your shoulders for an elegant drape or wrap it into a chunky scarf for a cold walk outdoors.

I had been wanting to make a shawl for quite a while but I was having trouble finding inspiration. With the yarn box, it gave me access to yarn I never would have seen before. And good quality yarn too. And after this shawl, I still have tons of yarns left over to add to my stash.

You can easily get your very own yarn box too. Subscribe to MakerU here and they’ll go ahead and ship out your box. I received soy silks and wools, and an array of other interesting fibers. It’s always nice to receive a mystery box full of goodies. And when you’re a crafter like me, no yarn goes unstitched.
