The Dewdrop wrap is the perfect shawl for any season! The mesh arches give the wrap an open airy look while the optional scalloped border adds a romantic and feminine feel.
Although the design looks intricate, this crochet wrap it a lot easier to make than it seems. Chains and double crochets make up 99% of this easy wrap (with single crochets making up the last 1%) and the pattern follows a four row repeat so you can extend it to any length you want! This simple and versatile project would also make a great Mother’s day gift.
I’ve been thinking of a scalloped shawl design for a while (since I first made the Sunburst Scarf last year! Also check out the Stormborn Wrap) but I like wrap patterns that are simple and a little bit mindless, without complicated stitch designs or the need to count stitches every single row.
I couldn’t quite come up with a design that looked delicate and lacy without requiring the skills to read a crazy advanced crochet stitch chart. Finally, I was playing around with creating mesh fabrics (for upcoming summer designs *wink*) and discovered this combination of stitches that looked a lot more intricate and lacier than it really was!
The best part is that it follows such a simple repeat so it's a lot easier to crochet than you would think, even after you've read the pattern! And the four row repeat means that you’ll quickly know if your stitch count is on the right track. I find that wraps with large sections of double crochet rows are easy but you can quickly loose the right stitch count since everything looks the same!
I love how the mesh/eyelets/gaps of this shawl all have rounded edges instead of the normal grid like look you find with crochet mesh to create a dreamy, romantic look. Also, I’d highly recommend steam blocking this wrap as it helps all the scallops and eyelets open up and create such a beautiful lacy effect.
Thanks to the airy design, the Dewdrop Wrap works well in any season – winter, spring, summer or fall! (Does anyone else hear the Gilmore Girls theme song in their head? haha). Just choose a yarn fibre that’s suitable to the season you’d like to wear this wrap. I can already imagine a cotton version in a light sea blue would be amazing in summer or a merino wool yarn for winter!
I also styled this wrap two different ways so you could see just how versatile it is! Despite, the lacy stitches and scalloped edge you can style it with a more casual look (i.e. – the denim jacket and leggings) to add a feminine touch to your outfit or you can pair it with a flowy maxi dress for all the romantic vibes – imagine strolling through Provence (south of France) with this wrap during lavender season!
My yarn stash has been getting out of control so I used an aran merino yarn that’s from a small farm in the South Island of New Zealand. This organic merino really has the bounciest, most marshmallowy feel in any yarn I’ve ever tried! This merino is also undyed, so it’s just the natural cream colour of the sheep.
The Dewdrop wrap is very forgiving so any aran/worsted weight yarn would make a great substitute!
For the closest substitute you can pick a merino yarn from WeCrochet’s Bare range – they are all untreated yarns that shine by themselves or are great for dying or Lionbrand’s Jeans or Basic stitch are great affordable alternatives!
