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.
