There’s nothing more indulgent than crocheting something gorgeous and glamorous for yourself, and this beautiful boho-inspired wrap makes the perfect project. Here, we share Stephanie Lau’s Boho Crochet Wrap pattern and tell you how to get the look.
Once in a while, a pattern catches your eye and you just have to order the yarn right there and then! All other WIPs are forgotten for the new project, and you can’t rest until it’s finished. This is very true of Stephanie Lau’s Boho Crochet Wrap – it’s decadently swingy, it’s gorgeously soft and it can be swirled around your shoulders all through the spring and summer!

It’s your best friend at a festival, makes the perfect extra layer at a BBQ or at the theatre, and it will keep your shoulders covered on the beach! Say hello to Stephanie Lau’s Boho Crochet Wrap!
The suggested yarn here is King Cole Bamboo Cotton DK, a super soft and swirly bamboo and cotton blend that has a beautiful sheen and drape. It comes in 25 shades – including some beautiful jewel brights and romantic muted vintage colors – we love the Dusty Pink and Glacier shades, but Fuchsia and Crimson would bring out the gypsy in your soul! Bamboo yarns do have a very lovely drape, and are perfect for keeping you cool as well as being great for anyone vegan or allergic to animal fibres.
Cute cover-up crochet patterns
You’ll need four balls of King Cole Bamboo Cotton DK or 920m/1000 yards of your favourite DK weight yarn. Of course, there’s no reason why you couldn’t make this wrap in a different fibre – be decadent with silk, or try a wool blend for cool weather. You’ll also need a 4mm hook for those gorgeous shell stitches.
Get ready to be festival fabulous! The beauty of one of these shawls is that if you want to make it slightly smaller you can, or bigger if you are tall and you’d like it to drape further down your body. The fun fringe brings a vintage feel that is also so on trend – it’s the perfect garment for summer!
