Hello everyone, and welcome to a new instalment of the Vintage Crochet Series. This week I am bringing to you a tutorial on how to crochet an Edwardian Era Wrap.

Crochet an Ewardian Era Wrap: the return of the Vintage Crochet Series

As you know, I love recreating historical crochet pieces. This wrap is inspired by photographs and engravings from the Edwardian Era. The Edwardian Era is a historical era in England from 1901 to 1911 (or sometimes it is extended to 1918, the end of World War 1). I love this era for it’s subtle and modern elegance. It is also a very feminine era I think.

This wrap is inspired by the Edwardian Era

If you are a fan of Downtown Abbey then you will be familiar with Edwardian Era clothes and accessories. Jewel tones clothes and accessories characterise this era. Slim lines and femininity also are a huge part of the Edwardian style.

Crochet The “Madeleine” Wrap: behind the name

I decided to call this crochet Edwardian Wrap the “Madeleine” Wrap. The inspiration for this name comes from my great-grandmother Marie-Madeleine, who I spent a lot of time with while growing up in France. Indeed, my great-grandmother lived during this amazing era, and I used to spend a great deal of time with her as a child. I loved her so much, and she lived until the age of 99.

I love wraps so much

She was the epitome of French style and chic, and I can just imagine her wearing a beautiful and stylish crochet wrap. She was actually an avid knitter and crocheter herself.

I absolutely adore the name Madeleine, which she was the name she was christened with. Officially it was Marie-Madeleine, however everyone called her Madeleine. In honour of my great grand mother, I thought I would call this wrap The Madeleine Wrap.

    I love the antique patterns!!!! After I found several Mc Calls magazines from the early 60’s, I became obsessed with antique patterns. I really enjoy knitting the clothes from that era. Thank you for posting your patterns. If anyone is interested, I’d gladly share and trade patterns with any of the needle workers on ur blog.

      Hello and thank you for your lovely comment. Memories from childhood are so precious, thank you for sharing about your grandmother when you were a child in Glasgow. How lovely that you love to knit and crochet! Have a great day, Selina xx

    I believe you have a typo in the Row 3 written instruction. You write, “1 DC into 2nd DC from previous 7 DC fan.” According to your video, it should be 1 SC into 2nd DC.

    Your video tutorial was very helpful when I was confused. I have trouble with paragraph style crochet instructions; I have to rewrite them in list form. For this pattern, I found writing a chart was also very helpful.

    Looking forward to crocheting this beautiful piece!
