Want an excuse to wear a blanket anytime in public? Then the Felicity Velvet Blanket Wrap is the perfect free crochet pattern for you! Made from a rectangle that is sewn together, this piece is a perfect beginner garment pattern! Stylish and cozy, you won’t want to take this beautiful wrap off once you put it on!
This crochet blanket wrap pattern was originally designed for the Joy of Motion blog, but now I get to share it on mine as well! I wanted to create a soft and cozy crochet wrap pattern that feels like a blanket, but has the style of a boho crochet wrap. I couldn’t help adding some crochet bobbles as well, which make the cutest accents!
When I first designed this pattern, I was just starting to venture into the world of designing wearables, so I wanted to make something beginner friendly. I was really obsessed with velvet yarn (and still am), which meant that if I could make something that felt like a blanket, I was going to design it to have that feel with more style. I mean, who doesn’t want to wear a blanket in public that looks cute? That made a crochet blanket pattern the perfect thing to make! Give me all of the blankets please! Now with this pattern you can make your very own shawl with sleeves. You’re going to love it!
Let’s talk about the construction of this wrap. Feeling worried about not being able to make a garment? Girl, I got you! This crochet wrap pattern is one of the simplest garments out there that you can make. It’s made from one rectangle that is sewn up to create the sleeves. If you can crochet a rectangle then you can make this! The pattern comes in sizes S-5X, with the S-M sizes being included in this free version. If you’d like one of the other sizes, I’ve got a discounted ad free pdf copy in my Etsy and Ravelry stores that’s available for just $2. I have it discounted as a service to my readers to make sure anyone can make my patterns!
All I can say is that I’m obsessed with velvet yarn! If you’ve never worked with it, then let this be the first time you use it, because it is the softest yarn that you’ll ever touch or work with. Bernat Velvet yarn is incredibly soft, and it’s a bulky weight yarn, which helps this wrap work up really fast. I know that some people don’t like velvet yarn, so if you want to supplement it with another weight 5 bulky yarn you totally can. One of my other favorite bulky weight yarns is Lion Brand Color Made Easy or Bernat Softee Chunky.
