Cotton Picnic Wrap Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs


Cotton Picnic Wrap Crochet Pattern
 By Sara Sach of
This Light and Fun Wrap is great for a breezy Summer 
Morning or Evening.
It is just what you need to wrap around your wet hair, 
after a swim. Wrap it around your waist
 or shoulders after a day at the lake, pool or beach.
Also a fun addition to your summer outfit.
I designed the Wrap using Caron Cotton Cakes by
Yarnspirations.
 The yarn is 60 % Cotton and 40% Acrylic yarn.
The cotton makes it cool, comfy and absorbent. 
The Acrylic gives the yarn a little stretch and softness.
A perfect combination for a Summer Wrap.
