Make this beautiful crochet circle wrap
Sill Level: Intermediate
Sizes: S/M (For Large, work with 2 strands, inc hooks sizes accordingly to increase gauge)
Materials: Rowan Felted Tweed, DK, 191 yards, 50g, (1600 yards total), Crochet hook sizes H and I
Notes: May be worked in one solid color or up to 3 colors. Color changes are suggestions. You may switch colors on any round you like. Sleeves are optional. Garment is worked in one large flat circle with slits for armholes. No instructions are given for inc’s after the first 3 rounds. Inc often enough to keep work flat. To avoid “points” in the work, do no inc directly over a previous increase. Crochet fairly loose for a good give and fit.
