Crochet The Beautiful Maiden Wrap
Hi everyone, I hope you are well. This week my tutorial is on how to crochet The Beautiful Maiden Wrap.
I was inspired to name it that way because of the design, as well as the beautiful texture and colours of the Landscapes Yarn by Lion Brand. This time I used shade Cabana which is so gorgeous!

Lion Brand Yarn Landscape Collection
I personally adore Lion Brand Yarns, as they always feel so luxurious and soft, and I also really love their Landscapes collection. The colours are stunning. The texture of the yarn is absolutely delightful, as well as unusual and soft. It does not contain any wool, but definitely looks like it could, so it does give projects that warm rustique look, which I absolutely love!
I started this project whilst on holiday in the French Alps to visit my Dad, and I have to say the yarn was very much in tune with my surroundings, if that makes sense.
About the project
This project works up fairly quickly, and the V-shape of this sumptuous and colourful wrap makes it so easy to pair with so many outfits. It is very easy to crochet as it is an alteration of two rows, giving it a lovely and intricate look too. I definitely recommend this pattern if you are a beginner crocheter. It is a very simple repeat pattern, and because it is a worsted weight yarn, it does tend to work up quickly.
Crochet The Beautiful Maiden Wrap: Behind the name
I called this wrap The Beautiful Maiden Wrap because it does look like a cape that could have been worn during Medieval times, or the Renaissance (or a show like The Walking Dead, which I love for some reason!), and as you know, I love history and it’s fashion! So I really love that this accessory, although simple, has a definite fairy tale like quality to it!
This wrap can be versatile too, as you can simply wrap it around you like a scarf, or use it as a cape, fastening it with a brooch like I did (which adds to the Medieval look of this garment to be honest). All in all, it is also a great gift you can give to someone, as the colours and texture are very neutral in a way, so likely to suit most people, and their taste.
