This compendium of crochet stitches in one of my favourites. 154 choices for beautiful waves, ripples and chevrons – all with colour photographs and detailed written instructions.

Each design begins with the “chain multiple” instructions to allow you to use the pattern with any yarn and hook combination.

The special stitch instructions are included within the individual patterns so you do not need to flip back and forth to complete your chosen project. This is especially helpful when you are using the eBook version of the publication.

Some of the designs are lacy, some are solid and many show how the design will look using multiple colours.

  • Exquisite
  • Singles & Doubles
  • Caprice
  • Arched Lace
  • Salsa

You can get your own copy from Leisure Arts – eBook ($14.99) and Book ($24.95).

You may wish to use a stitch marker to mark R2 as the Right Side of your project.

R3: ch 3 (note: this ch 3 counts as the 1st dc of the row so you do not work into the underlying stitch as this dc takes its place),

(3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in the next ch-3 sp, ch 1

  1. Looks so cool can’t wait to try, just have to get that yarn here hopefully at hobby lobby 🙂

  2. Thanks Fortune! I’m thinking the Patons Metallic will look really pretty 🙂 I have a few balls in my stash of the navy and silver – I may give it a go when I’m done this month’s Dishcloth CAL 🙂 Let me know how your’s turns out too please 🙂 Rhondda

  3. Thank you for sharing this beautiful shawl pattern,im just starting and am using patons metalic, ill let you know how it turns out❤

  4. Hi Cindy, I wonder if someone has some still in their stash? I loved that yarn too and wish it was still available. I was able to find some still on amazon in 3 colors here: https://www.amazon.com/Red-Heart-Boutique-Midnight-Whisper/dp/B0055E8Z30/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&qid=1512060530&sr=8-1&keywords=boutique+midnight+yarn&th=1&linkCode=ll1&tag=oomdescro-20&linkId=a19da27405d106d2da2b5639cb903787 but really I can’t find it anywhere else 🙁 If I come across something that works well I will update the post. All the best, Rhondda

  5. In my post above I meant to say, “In my opinion, there isn’t any other kind of yarn that will be able to give the same impact to this wrap as the yarn that was used in the picture above!!” Sorry about that!!!

  6. Now that I have seen this wrap I am do not believe any other yarn will be able to do this pattern justice. The mixture of the colors is PERFECT and the sparkle of the metallic threads makes this wrap stunning and unfortunately, in my opinion, unable to give the same impact as it does with the Red Heart Boutique yarn. I have some Caron Party Yarn that has the metallic threads going through it but I do not believe the wrap will come any where close to being what the wrap looks like in this picture!! So disappointed that I will not be able to reproduce this amazing wrap!!

  7. Hi Elizabeth, This is a tough one to match now – if you want the ‘chained look of the yarn’ substitute: SCHACHENMAYR ORIGINAL Aventica, MARY MAXIM Pia, SCHACHENMAYR ORIGINAL Cordelo. I can’t find a replacement with the chained look and metallic but Red Heart’s With Love Metallic is a similar weight yarn – it won’t look exactly the same but it will work and still have the shine too it. After Row 2 check to see what your current width is – it should be approximately 15 inches wide at this point. If it is bigger than this I would go down a hook size.

    My only concern is the texture of the yarn itself is much smoother than the original yarn I used with the chained look. It may not give you the same effect as if you were switching to another ‘chained’ style of yarn – but if this doesn’t bother you I think you will get a pretty shimmer by using the With Love Metallic. Let me know how it goes if you can 🙂 I’d be interested to know.

    Thank you, Rhondda

  8. I absolutely love this wrap especially with the hint of metallic. My problem is, however, now I’m wanting to make this the Boutique yarn is no longer available. I was thinking of using Red Heart’s With Love Metallic but am not sure whether this will work for the pattern. Please advise if I can do this and whether the hook size will need to be changed. Looking forward to reading your next newsletter. Thanks.

  9. Hi Laura, The edging actually is part of the pattern. It works out to be waved all on its own using the stitch pattern 🙂 Thank you for your kind words! All the best, Rhondda

  10. Hi!
    Love the wrap! Your site is awesome. I love seeing your work. One question….where is the edging pattern written out? Love the look of it with the edging you added! Thanks for sharing so much. I’ve created many projects from your lovely designs.

  11. Hi Nancy, The Midnight Aura Wrap is a free pattern and included in this post 🙂 If you scroll down the instructions are there for you and there is a printfriendly button located at the end of the post so you can print or save a PDF copy of the pattern for your own personal use. Hope this helps!! All the best, Rhondda

  12. How do I get the pattern to Midnight Aura Wrap? I have tried everything I know of to find it.

  13. Hi Mo, Welcome to Oombawka Design! You may crochet the wrap in any color 🙂 If you want to crochet it using a lighter weight yarn you can but you will need to increase the width of the wrap (increase the starting chain length) because it will become smaller in size, if you use a lighter weight yarn (finer yarn). All the best, Rhondda

  14. Hi Rhondda, My name is Mo, & I am new to your site. I have been crocheting since I’m six yrs old. My grandma taught me, I’m from Italy, so I was taught very young. You have an amazing site, lots of great ideas. I will be visiting your site often, I have also recommended your site to my family & friends. Can your Midnight Aura Wrap be made in a different lighter
    color. My mom would like me to make this in a spring/summer color. I love the dark colors.
    Or is there a slightly different pattern for spring??
    Thank you, for your time you put into this site, Great Job. Please, Please keep up the great work & ideas. Mo

  15. Hi everybody, here every person is sharing these knowledge, so it’s good
    to read this website, and I used to pay a visit this blog all the

  16. This is a gorgeous wrap, I am hunting ideas for Christmas presents and this one is going to be for my sister. 🙂

  17. are the directions for this wrap in UK or US ?
    I was not sure if I need to convert.

  18. Hi Carol, I had never heard of it but it looks absolutely gorgeous! It is a fingering weight yarn – 100g/500yds. Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable Yarn is 100g/279yds.

    This means Anzula is 0.2 g / 1 y and Red Heart is 0.36 g / 1 y. Red Heart is much heavier. The Wrap will be much lighter weight if you use the Anzula. You will need to use a different hook size too so it will change the finished size of the wrap (it will be smaller).

    Hope this helps, Rhondda

  19. I’ve just found this shawl pattern…and am considering for some yarn I bought recently – Anzula “Milky Way” – if you haven’t seen this, it’s actually made with milk proteins…incredible!
    It’s a fine, almost lace-weight yarn. I wonder if this would work with this pattern…what’s your opinion, Rhonnda? I value your insight – you are far more experienced than I.

  20. I’ve been looking for a nice size wrap that had a ‘look’ to it that I’d know when I saw it! Thank goodness I’ve found it and can get ready for cold weather now…..if the south ever decides to cool off that is. I’m going to make a headband to match, so no coats for me this year. Our winters are mild in enough in S.C. to wear this over long sleeves and go anywhere with no bulky too-hot coat to drag around! Thx!

  21. Hi Diana 🙂 Welcome to my page and FB page too! Thank you for your lovely message – I do find it very relaxing to crochet 🙂 Happy you found the yarn – It was quite lovely to work with – and there are quite a few pretty colours available now too! Have a fantastic weekend, Rhondda

  22. oooops! i just had to look harder! found the yarn name and colour! 🙂

  23. Rhondda! I’m a brand new fan! I just saw the share on BobWilson123…..and I’m in love with you and your scarf!!! I’ll be going directly to FB page and you’ll see a NEW “like page”. I can’t wait to read more about you! I taught myself crochet at 16 to make my sister the Ripple Baby Afghan. It’s a lovely, relaxing hobby. Oh, did I miss it?…..Did you mention the name of this yarn, cuz I missed it….
    Thank you so much for sharing the pattern, I’m sure you’ll hear accolades from me again!

  24. Just lovely! Plan on making my girlfriends some nice Christmas gifts!!

  25. This is just beautiful! Hope I can pull it off. Thanks for all the wonderful free patterns!

  26. I am going to try making this wrap. I love the stitches and the beautiful yarn.

  27. Hi Veronica 🙂 I’m happy you want to try the pattern! Let me know if you run into any questions – I’m happy to help, Rhondda

  28. Thank you very much for sharing this pattern, I’m going to make it for ME (-: (-:

  29. Hi Rhondda,

    I’m very new to the crocheting world (Super Excited), saw this pattern and said I have some Witchy in me, so I’m printing the pattern and off to buy the yarn.

    Many blessings…


  30. I Keep Staying with it, This one is my absolute favorite!!!

  31. This is a gorgeous wrap! I love thick scarves so I think this one would be wonderful to keep warm in the cooler months. Thanks for sharing all these great patterns! I saved it in my Ravelry so I can look at it later. 🙂

  32. Hi.
    Ya i have to stay with my other comment, this one is still my favorite 🙂

  33. Hi Angelica 🙂 Thank you! I love it too – and yes it is so hot and humid here most days this is likely going to be something I wear come September/October myself :)Although the last 3 days it has been under 20 degrees! So I guess I could have gotten away with it! Rhondda

  34. I love this pattern, really! It looks smart and comfy…
    I’ll leave it to make it in Autumn… too hot here to think about shawls 😉

  35. This one is my favorite of your free patterns!! 🙂

  36. Hi Helen 🙂 The little green printer icon on the right with my sharing buttons (there is a group of them above and below the post) is actually the print friendly button that allows you to print or change the post into a pdf 🙂 I wish it said print-friendly on it but it isn’t an option and I didn’t want to add another plugin to the page as it slows down the load time too much 🙂 Let me know if you can access it from your phone please 🙂 If you can’t I may have to get the other plug-in too 🙂 Hope this helps! Rhondda

  37. Hi
    This is lovely, I’d like to make one for my mum.
    Is there any chance you could include a PDF button so I can save this pattern for when I don’t have a wifi connection? (Moogly has something similar) I only have internet access from my iPhone and I want to make things as I travel. I lose signal all the time where I live (Scottish Highlands) so I can’t see the patterns all the time :0(
    Thanks so much

  38. Is there a math calculation to make it wider? Can’t wait to try this!!

  39. Hi Betty Lou 🙂 I found the yarn very easy to work with – maybe because I used a larger hook? I’m not sure – I’ve never tried to work with it with a smaller hook – I didn’t run into any trouble and even when I frogged a few rows to restart the Design and re-used the yarn it still looked fantastic – (and it wasn’t difficult to pull it apart either – it didn’t catch on itself). I didn’t find it splitty either – maybe because the hook was larger? Hope this helps 🙂 Rhondda

  40. Wow – this wrap is sooooo B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!! Thank you for sharing, Rhondda! ♥♥♥

  41. This is very nice…gorgeous in fact! I knew you are a rising star in the crochet world! 🙂

  42. This is lovely Rhondda. I have long admired this yarn but Imheard it is difficult to work with, what was your experience with the yarn?
