The Interminable Wrap

The stitch pattern for The Interminable Wrap is really simple; I've used US terminology here. There are links to US/UK conversions in my previous post.

You'll need to begin with a multiple of 8 chains plus 1 - my wrap had 24 repeats across the width, so I made 193 chains [24 x 8 + 1]. I worked until the wrap was the length I wanted, ending with a 4th row, then edged it as below.

Stitch pattern

Row 1 (right side): 1 dc into 7th ch from hook, *ch 1, sk next ch, 1 dc into next ch; rep from * to end, turn.

Row 2: Ch 4, sk first dc, 1 dc into next dc, ch 1, *[1 dc into next dc, 1 dc into next ch] twice, [1 dc into next dc, ch 1] twice; rep from * ending with 1 dc into 5th of beg skipped ch-6, turn.

Row 3: Ch 4, sk first dc, 1 dc into next dc, ch 1, *1 dc into each of next 5 dc, ch 1, 1 dc into next dc, ch 1; rep from * ending with 1 dc into 3rd of ch-4, turn.

Row 4: Ch 4, sk first dc, *1 dc into next dc, ch 1, 1 dc into next dc, [ch 1, sk next dc, 1 dc into next dc] twice, ch 1; rep from *  ending with ch 1, 1 dc into next dc, ch 1, 1 dc into 3rd of ch-4, turn.

Row 5: Ch 4, sk first dc, 1 dc into next dc, ch 1, *[1 dc into next dc, 1 dc into next ch] twice, [1 dc into next dc, ch 1] twice; rep from * ending with 1 dc into 3rd of ch-4, turn.

Repeat Rows 3 to 5 until the wrap is the length you want, ending with a 4th row.

Edging

Interminable_wrap_edge_detail_1

Starting at one corner with the right side of the wrap facing you, work single crochet round the wrap, working 1 sc into each dc and 1 sc into each ch-1 space across the short edges; 2 sc into each row end down the long edges; 5 sc into the space at each corner. Join the ends of the round with a slip stitch into the first sc.

Work another round of sc, beginning with a ch and working 1 sc into each sc of the previous round; 3 sc into the centre stitch of each 5 sc corner group. Join the round with a slip stitch into the first sc.

To finish off the edging, work a row of slip stitches between the two rows of single crochet. Break off the yarn and darn in the ends. Block. Stand back and admire.
