Introduction

This lovely crochet wrap came about because I wanted to make my mom something special for Mother's Day. I had the yarn and the will so I took up my hook and began working. As I was working I decided I didn't want to make a regular scarf, so I made it a bit wider. The length just came about because I wanted my mom to be able to wrap herself with this piece when walking or sitting in church.

This piece is warm, soft and one of the best things to have along as a stand-alone or wraped around your head and shoulders over a coat.

Hi Sedie! Thanks for accepting my buddy request:). I love both your patterns on here - I'm beginning with crochet so I think I'm going to try this stole first - it seems easy enough and very lovely. Your etsy shop is great too! I love the neckwarmer and glove sets! It's going on my wish list:).

Best!

Hello!

 I am just starting this project and when I saw your creation, I thought it would look so good in white with white fur trim since it is winter now. I cannot wait to finish it. Looks so comfy and cozy! PS I used Loops and Threads Charisma yarn from  MIchaels :)
