Gently Reminisce Wrap Free Crochet Pattern
Wrap yourself in a soft and gentle hug while you gently reminisce of days long past.
This wrap was designed for the warmer weather during the spring, summer and fall. It is lightweight and super soft. Lacy and playful. Simple to crochet and the added fringe, makes it fun to wear.
Designed using 3-colors of The Cotton Wool (100% Pima Cotton Yarn from We Are Knitters), with an easy to remember stitch pattern repeat, basic crochet stitches and zero ends to sew in! This design is soon to be one of your very favorites.
As an added bonus, I have provided the stitch pattern repeat to allow you to make your wrap to any size you wish.
The completed design is 16-inches wide and 60-inches long (before the fringe). The fringe adds an extra 10-inches in length (5-inches on each side) for a total length of 70-inches.

R1: Using Color-A, leave a 5.5 inch tail of yarn and ch 205. (Cl, ch 1, Cl) in ninth ch from your hook (Note: the 8 skipped chains count as 1 dc, ch 2 and 3 skipped chs). Ch 2, sk 3 chs, 1 dc in next ch. *Ch 2, sk 3 chs, (Cl, ch 1, Cl) in next ch, ch 2, sk 3 chs, 1 dc in next ch.** Rep from * to ** 24 times. Finish off with a ch 1 leaving a 5.5-inch tail of yarn. 25 repeats [26 dc, 50 ch2sp, 25 (Cl, ch 1, Cl)]
R1 is the RS of your project. You may wish to mark R1 with a stitch marker in the front of a stitch to remember this. If you forget, you can tell because it will have 2-tails of yarn on the left-hand side and zero tails of yarn on the right-hand side (if you are crocheting right-handed).
R2: Turn. Join Color-B with 1 dc in first dc, ch 2, sk next ch2sp, sk next Cl. (Cl, ch 1, Cl) in next ch1sp, ch 2, sk next Cl, sk next ch2sp, 1 dc in next dc. *Ch 2, sk ch2sp, sk Cl, (Cl, ch 1, Cl) in next ch1sp, ch 2, sk next Cl, sk next ch2sp, 1 dc in next dc**. Rep from * to ** 24 times. Finish off with a ch 1, leaving a 5.5-inch tail of yarn. [26 dc, 50 ch2sp, 25 (Cl, ch 1, Cl)]
R3: Rep R2 using Color-C.
R4: Turn. Join Color-A with 1 sl st in first dc, ch 2, 1 dc in the same st. Ch 2, sk next ch2sp, sk next Cl, 1 dc in next ch1sp, ch 2, sk next Cl and sk next ch2sp. *(Cl, ch 1, Cl) in next dc, ch 2, sk next ch2sp, sk next Cl, 1 dc in next ch1sp, ch 2, sk next Cl, sk next ch2sp**. Rep from * to ** 24 times. Work Cl in final dc. Finish off with a ch 1, leaving a 5.5-inch tail of yarn. [25 dc, 50 ch2sp, 24 (Cl, ch 1, Cl), 2 Cl]
R5: Rep R4 using Color-B.
R6: Rep R4 using Color-C.
You will repeat the above sequence. *Rep R2 three times (changing color every row in the same order) then rep R4 three times (changing color every row in the same order)**. Rep from * to ** 4 times. Then repeat R2 in Color A, 1 final time, for a total of 31 rows.

To complete this project you will need to cut some extra lengths of yarn to add the fringe.
You will need to cut 11-inch lengths of yarn. One easy way to do this is to cut a piece of cardboard to a width of 5.5 inches (and long enough to allow you to wrap your yarn around it multiple times) before cutting the yarn on one end only.
You will need the following number of 11-inch pieces:
Color A: 44
Color B: 40
Color C: 40
Now here is how I added them to my wrap…I use 2 pieces of the same color for each row end of the same color for a neat finish. Be sure you work from the same side each time so they are attached the same way across the whole edge of the wrap. There is a little trick to making this look super neat and finished and here it is:
Nice and neat – with the added bonus of having secured that row-end a bit more too!
After you have added your fringe you need to trim them to the same length. I trimmed mine to 5-inches on each side. Remember it will be difficult to notice small differences in length – so please do not worry too much about having a perfectly straight edge.

Wow! Really gorgeous, Rhondda, I love it! I’ve got some cotton ready for a colourful wrap like this… So this will be it! And Ill start it ASAP 🙂 (The big basket will have to wait, spring is just a few a days from now and here in Spain it won’t be useful in a a couple of months, you know. It’s hot here from May onwards). One more time: thanks a lot for sharing your beautiful work.
By the way, Have you got more than 2 hands? 😉
Thank you Lori 🙂 I’m so pleased you like it! If you do work one up I would love to see it – you can even add a project page on Ravelry if you use Ravelry and I can add your photo to my listing 🙂
Have a lovely week!
This is beautiful! I’ve been looking for a shawl pattern and this wrap would work beautifully! Thank you 🙂
