You may have seen me stitching away at this wrap on Instagram. I was given a gorgeous hank of Manos Del Uruguay Marina and I’ve been waiting for just the right pattern to use it. It’s a luxurious lace weight merino wool yarn so I wanted something that would show off the soft fiber and rich tonal colors, and this Solomon’s Knot Whisper Wrap Crochet Pattern is just the one!
Solomon’s Knot Whisper Wrap Crochet Pattern
Here is what you need:
- 1 hank lace weight yarn, approx 400 yds (shown here in Manos Del Uruguay Marina in the Denim colorway N7338)
- 2.25 mm hook
- needle and scissors
- Optional for beaded edging:
- 55 size 6/0 seed beads (more if making larger size)
- US 6/1.6 mm crochet hook or one small enough to fit through your bead opening
Finished shawl measures 38 in. long × 18 in. wide as written and blocked.
Solomon’s Knot (sk) – Draw up a loop on your hook about ½-in tall, chain 1, single crochet through back loop of long chain, one Solomon’s Knot made.
Row 1: Work 1 sc in 2nd chain from hook, work 110 sk across (or longer if desired to an even number of sk), turn.
Row 2: Work 3 sk, skip 1st sc from previous row and work 1 sc in next sc (this will be the 5th sc from your hook), *work 2 sk, skip next sc and work 1 sc in the following sc, repeat from * across, turn.
Row 3: Work 3 sk, skip 1st sc from previous row and work 1 sc in next sc (this will be the 5th sc from your hook), *work 2 sk, skip next sc and work 1 sc in the following sc, repeat from * across, turn.
Rows 4 through 35: Repeat Row 3 until Row 35 or until desired width in reached, turn.
Ch 1, 1 sc in first sc from previous row, *ch 4, [1 sc, ch 1, 2 dc, ch 1, 1 sc] in next sc, ch 4, 1 sc in next sc, repeat from * across and down side edge of piece. If desired, you can add a bottom beaded edge as described below or continue from * across bottom edge and remaining side.
If adding beads to your edge, place each bead between the 2 dc, that is … work 1 sc in first sc, *ch 4, [1 sc, ch 1, 1 dc, place bead, 1 dc, ch 1, 1 sc] in next sc, ch 4, 1 sc in next sc, repeat from * across.
To add a bead, drop hook from loop, using a smaller hook if needed, place bead onto hook and back into dropped loop.
Pull loop through bead and continue with pattern switching back to original hook if necessary. Repeat this for each stitch that you would like to add a bead.
