November’s crochet crush, is the gorgeous,
“Ivy Green Wrap” by Torun Johansson.
Isn’t is just wonderful.
The Ivy Green is a snuggly wrap that can easily be adjusted to your preferred size.
I’m sure you would turn ahead or two while wearing it in all it’s splender but don’t you agree that it would make the perfect table runner for your Christmas table or you could supersize it and make a bed runner.
If you are clever you could always turn it into matching cushions. Your opinions are endless.
So why not pop on over to Ravelry and by yourself a copy.
If you are quick, Torun has an offer of 10% DISCOUNT through to December 8th, which will be applied at checkout.
The pattern includes written instructions as well as both right-handed and left-handed charts for the middle section.
The pattern uses basic sc, hdc and dc stitches (US terms).
The middle panel uses the tapestry crochet technique, a method for working multiple colors across each row.
Torun recommends using a DK weight yarn, DK (or even worsted) weight yarn in acrylic, wool or a blend can be used. Cotton is not recommended as tapestry crochet is rather dense and the result can come out too stiff.
The Ivy wrap is the perfect pattern to introduce you to this technique.
A photo tutorial on how to switch colors is also included in the pattern.
A huge thank you to Torun for letting me share her beautiful wrap with you and also for allowing me to use her stunning photos.
