I’ve got a free crochet pattern for you!
Hello friends! I’m so excited to bring you this new free crochet pattern! Allow me to introduce, “Sonoran Sunrise Wrap.” I’m enamored with this beautiful wrap! I’m going to buy myself a new maxi dress just so that I can wear this wrap to church (because it always seems to be freezing in the chapel!).

I’ve stitched this beauty in Cascade Heritage Wave, which is a fairly new line of colors added to the wonderful Cascade Heritage line. Each colorway shifts gradually from one shade to the next. This wrap uses 4 skeins of the main colorway, and 1 skein of an accent color. I’m seriously tempted to make another one with a different color combination!
I’ve sized this wrap generously; the finished wrap is about 16″ x 72″ [or 40.5 cm x 183 cm].
As with all my patterns, if you’d like to share it with someone else, please direct them to my website to get their own copy instead of making one for them. Thank you!
