Hi everyone! :)
Last week I showed you the project I was working on; I made a big stack of circles, or spirals, according to the When Alice Fell pattern by Charissa Ragsdale. (when I wrote this it was still on sale for $2 in her Craftsy shop!)
And last weekend I finished it! :D My friend Simone offered to model for me, which is awesome because she has the most amazing dreads! (and she’s also the one that did my dreads; more on that in a different blog post)
I love this wrap! It’s so perfect!
I used Rico Creative Cotton to join the circles. I used the remainder of the peacock yarn (more info on that in this blog post) for the outer border. I skipped the last round of the border because I was afraid I didn’t have enough yarn, but the wrap still looks finished to me :)
You can wear it around your shoulders, or use a shawl pin to fasten it in the front.
You can even wear it as a regular scarf! :)
Pattern: When Alice Fell by Charissa Ragsdale
Yarn for the body: Peacock Feather hand dyed by Raindrop Yarns
Yarn for joining: Rico Creative cotton in green (49), yellow (76), brown (56), purple (11) and teal (47)
Hook size: 5mm for the spirals, 4mm for the joining
I had a blast making this pattern and I just love how it came out. It is warm, it’s comfortable and it’s a gorgeous design – what more can you ask for?
I really want to keep it myself but since I already own a bunch of wraps and shawls, I’m thinking about putting it in my Etsy shop; anyone interested?
