Electra Wrap

Two ethereal yarns are combined in a starry love knot mesh, resulting in a heavenly cloud. The lacy mohair love knots create quiltlike air bubbles, making this crochet wrap warmer than it looks. The reversible wrap, which incorporates strategies that are handy to know when crocheting love knots, is edged as you crochet it in one continuous piece.

  1. Hi Susan, 

    A “double love knot” is the same as saying “two love knots.” These two ways of saying the same thing are both standard wording in patterns, dating from the early 20th century. I suspect it’s because the love knot has been used primarily for mesh patterns, for which one makes love knots two at a time; and the pattern writer needed a way to specify where to work the stitches of the following row.
