For those not too familiar with corner-2-corner (c2c) crochet, it starts off with a triangle and then when you reach the width you want, you can decide to either make it square or rectangle. The above photo is a picture of one of my more favorite c2c creations, a scarf I made in 2021 using a block stitch. I used ‘Lion Brand Yarn Ice Cream Big Scoop Yarn, Lemon Meringue’. It’s so soft. I made this scarf in honor of my Mom, she loved yellow and lemon in everything. ❤️
Now back to my Wacky Wrap Saga…
I had planned for my shawl to be a rectangle wrap done with a c2c v-stitch. It took a while for me to work the pattern out to get it to look promising.
It took me a few unravels, but finally it was working out to be a pretty good rectangle. I was so happy.
Yes, it went along pretty well, that is, until I reached the finishing point and needed to square-off the end.
And then, no matter what stitch-pattern I tried, it would not square off. I unraveled it four times and finally decided to let nature take its course. I decided to stop at the end of the 5th skein of yarn. I ended up with a finished wacky wrap.
72 inches long – 1st side.
60 inches long – 2nd side.
24 inches wide.
It’s not too awful looking.
My sister just pointed out that that my wacky wrap looks a bit like a pants pattern.😂
I like it. It’s quirky and has character.
It’s so soft.
I’ve already been using it.
Wishing you all a successful week and happy crafting!
