The Inspiration For My Crochet Triangle Shawl

I was so excited when Jess invited me to do a guest pattern on the blog. We immediately agreed it would be a crochet version of my recently released and super popular Burlington Knit Ruana.

I made just a few tweaks and changes in the design so that it can double as a supersized wrap as well. You know – one of those amazing “all you need in one” accessories for cold weather that works up super fast too!

Skills Needed To Crochet This Cozy Wrap

This is a great pattern for advanced beginners who want to try to expand their stitch arsenal. I used a quadruple treble – WOW that is a mouthful. It is a very cool twist on the treble crochet that adds length to the stitch.

In designing this wrap, I wanted it to be more than a standard sized wrap but went for that cozy oversized blanket feel. I also didn’t add the fringe as I did on the Burlington Knit version, this is a great wrap or shawl for colder days. I snuggled up with it already on one cool evening.

Cozy Yarn for a Cozy Crochet Swawl

I used Lion Brand Color Made Easy for this, just as I used in the Burlington Knit Ruana. I changed up the colors a bit so this is a sister design but not a twin. This yarn is great because it is a category 5 (which is hard enough to find) but works up like a charm without too much bulk.
