Hello Hook Nookers! It's me Karen from Hooked Up Crochet. It is my pleasure to bring to you, a one skein-er pattern that works up so fast and is beginner friendly. If you are like me, fall is craft show season, so having a quick and easy pattern makes market prep a breeze.
I began my crochet journey in late 2010 after wanting to pick up a hobby. I vividly remember standing in the aisle at Hobby Lobby holding a “Learn to Crochet” kit in one hand and a “Learn to Knit” in the other. I decided to go with crochet. I am so glad I did, even though I almost threw the book out the window on a road trip trying to figure out how to do a chain. It wasn’t long after that I had found my way to Facebook. I had messaged a designer on Etsy and she added me to her craft group and that is where I met Jessica. This past summer after all these years we were finally able to meet (hug & shed a few happy tears), in person. The best way I can describe my style is “Where cute & cozy meet”, I love creating and wearing classic pieces in neutral colors, but I also enjoy bold bright fun colors.
My favorite things to make are easy patterns that look difficult. The Wonder-Glam Wrap is something even a beginner can make! My pattern is measurement based, if you want you can use any yarn with corresponding hook combo. The name Wonder-Glam plays off a couple things I was thinking about when designing this hat. Wonder- playing of the "one" because it only uses one ball of We Are Knitters "Petite Wool". Glam- because I was thinking of "Old Hollywood" and how many of the actresses wore turban style hats. The finishing touches to the wrap make it extra glamourous.
Let's gather our materials & get to making!
The Wonder-Glam Wrap Crochet Pattern
Skill level: Beginner/Easy
Finished rectangle will measure:
- Height: 4 inches
- Length: 37 inches
K (6.5mm) crochet hook
1 Skein (153 yards) The Petite Wool from We Are Knitters
Jewel pins optional
YO- yarn over
SLST- slip stitch
SC- single crochet
HBDC- Herringbone Double Crochet
Chain at beginning of each row does not count as a st.
We are making a long rectangular piece then, using our sewing needle and stitch markers we will fold and sew to finish the wrap.
Herringbone Double Crochet- YO, insert hook into next CH, YO and pull through the CH and the first loop on the hook, YO and draw through 1 more loop on the hook, YO and draw through both loops on hook.
The Wonder-Glam Wrap
- With your yarn and hook make a CH that is 36 inches (91.44 cm) in length when slightly stretched. Any number of chains is ok. My initial CH was 111. This measurement is slightly smaller than what your finished size will be, it will reach correct size as you finish.
In the second CH from your hook work 1 sc in each CH across, turn.
1. CH 1, work 1 HBDC in each stitch across, turn.
*Repeat until your rectangle measures 4 inches tall
2. Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing.
To sew your wrap using a stitch marker place it in the middle of row 1 of your work. Next, take your two ends and make an X having them cross right in the middle, using the stitch marker as a guide.
Now turn your work over and using your yarn needle and your long tail you left sew your wrap together. In the photo you can see the corresponding dot colors show where you sew your pieces together.
I really hope you enjoyed this pattern. I love a piece that I can dress up with accessories such as these jewels from Amazon.
Another way I like to wear this piece is dressed down casually. If you enjoyed making this wrap please share with me on Instagram by tagging my shop @HookedUpCrochet.
Until next time, stay cozy friends!
