Travel Wrap

Since launching this blog a few days ago, I've received a few inquiries about my banner above. So, I figured it's time to show you more than just the detail. This Travel Wrap is my latest crocheted FO.

Oh, but it isn't merely crocheted. This cottony piece of goodness is really my first successful foray into Tunisian crochet! Most you know that I adore charts and Tunisian crochet seemed the apt method to tackle the color work.

I crocheted each square individually and then attached them together using plain old single crochet. Then I used sc again to create the red and blue "hopscotch" border around the edge. This is a wonderful project to tackle while traveling due to the fact that it's lots and lots of little squares (each one is 5" x 5"). It's even more wonderful to wear about my shoulders in flight with the AC blasting from the vents above my head!

Now, I believe I'll need a matching bag...


  1. I'm glad you're blogging again :-)

  2. Hey ladies! Long time no type! I'm glad to be blogging again too. Thanks so much for dropping by and saying hi!

  3. I LOVE it!!! Did you design it or is there a pattern out there somewhere?
