The heat of summer is upon us, but evenings can still be cool, especially when the weather is stormy. It has been in the 90’s here during the day, but we have been getting many evening thunderstorms and rain that make the temperature dip drastically. I love rainy summer nights, though – particularly the fresh smell of the damp earth and the chilly, breezy aftermath. It’s a welcome respite from the daytime July heat. If you’re looking for a unique cover up for such nights, this lacy crocheted wrap from Underground Crafter, appropriately named the Stormy Isle Wrap, is the perfect accessory. Use it for relaxing at home or to dress up any outfit for a day or night out.
As you can see, the stitching creates a beautiful lace pattern perfect for a breezy summer cover up. Don’t let this pattern intimidate you; the stitch looks complicated, but it is actually quite simple to create. This wrap was made with Premier Yarns Sweet Roll, a self-striping yarn that eliminates the need for color changes and weaving in ends in your finished work. You can find this yarn at Joann stores, where they carry over 25 gorgeous color combinations. Your biggest challenge in doing this project will probably be deciding on colors!
