Hello, I’m Ashley designer behind Through The Loop Yarn Craft. I am so happy to have the opportunity to share the Any Way Skinny Wrap!
I started my crochet journey simply to make cute creations for my family. It was love at first stitch and the passion continued to grow. It wasn’t long until I realized I was drawn to designing quick and practical makes.
My goal at TTLYC is to design quick and modern crochet patterns so busy crocheters can make more with the time they have! As a busy mom of seven with a full time job outside of the house I know how precious the crochet minutes can be. I love having makes that can get done quickly and aim to provide the designs anyone can have time to create!
I love making things that are quick and useful, and anything that can serve multiple purposes is ideal for me! Accessories are a fave of mine, I adore being able to add pops of color or layers to my outfits. I came up with the Any Way Skinny Wrap to provide all of those things!! It can be worn as a scarf, belt or even headband! The easy repeats make this pattern work up super quick too!
I used Lion Brand Hand Dyed Heaven yarn for this design because, well, the colors are so fun, and I liked the idea of having a nylon yarn for such a multi-functional accessory. It holds up well with wear, doesn’t stretch a lot, and piling is minimal. The light weight yarn was also a draw for me as I didn’t want something too bulky or warm. My second one I used Loops and Threads Meandering Mini’s. It’s a light worsted weight and is also part nylon. My testers used a few different yarns as well and we found that Ferris Wheel also worked well.
