Mediterranean Tulle Wrap

Wearing this wrap makes me feel like royalty.  This is one of the easiest things you could make and it looks gorgeous. Mohair will keep you warm even though the pattern is loose and airy.

Craft: knitting
Skill Level: Rookie-Apprentice-Virtuoso-Genius
Skills: knit, yarn over

Sizes: one size
Finished Measurements: approx. 28" wide and 56 inches from end to end (lying flat - it's stretchy though!)

Gauge: 14 sts and 16 rows = 4” on 6 mm in st st (as given on ball band); gauge is not too important
Yarn: 200g, 352 yds (321 m) bulky mohair
Suggested Brand: 4 skeins Pingouin Ligne Noire (discontinued)

Needles/Hooks: 10 mm 20" or longer circular or straight needles
Other Materials: tapestry needle or teeny crochet hook; 60" of 0.5 cm ribbon (or ribbon of your choice); 4-8 small buttons (size isn't crucial)


CO 61 sts (or an uneven number to the desired width).

Row 1: Knit
Row 2: *K2tog, YO*; rep from * to * to last st, knit

Rep Row 2 only until wrap reaches desired length, or until you run out of yarn (leaving enough for bind off). BO very loosely. Weave in ends.


Cut your ribbon in half and be sure the ends won’t fray (stick them near a flame to melt the ends, depending on the fabric - careful!).

Weave the ribbon through your wrap at one-inch intervals starting approx. 12 inches from one end.

Using a needle and thread, arrange one end of the ribbon in a bow and sew a button on top of it making sure you are sewing it to at least two strands of yarn at the edge of the wrap.

Repeat on the other side of the wrap pulling the ribbon so it is bunched as much as you would like.

Repeat for opposite end.
