Crochet The Ingenue Wrap
Hello my lovelies! I hope you are well. Today we will be looking to crochet The Ingenue Wrap, a really easy project. This is part of my Vintage Crochet Series.
The Ingenue Wrap I am releasing today is very close to my heart. Indeed, it took me a while to create the “perfect” Regency Era Wrap, and I love how this turned out. This sweet and summery accessory is directly inspired by the fashion of the Regency Era, and looks like it could definitely adorn the shoulders of some of our favourite Jane Austen heroines.
Let me know in the comments if you are a Janite (a fan of Jane Austen), just like myself! I would love to know who else is fascinated by the Regency Era and Austen’s world. The books of Jane Austen have always made my crochet imagination come to life! It’s so nice to read Persuasion or Pride and Prejudice, and imagine what our favourite heroines looked like. Period dramas really fascinate me too, and I love to look at the clothes worn on characters, trying to recreate my own version.
The Vintage Crochet Series
The Ingenue Wrap is part of my Vintage Era Crochet Series. You can find all my vintage era patterns and video tutorials on this blog. I have crochet patterns ranging from the Regency Era (like this one), to the 20th century, such as my French 1940s Wrap and my 1950s Hair Scarf. To find these projects just type “vintage crochet series” in the search bar.
The Youtube video tutorial for this project can be found here: Link to The Ingenue Wrap Video Tutorial
You can downoad the free pattern for this project at the bottom of this page. It is a great help for making this shawl, especially with the video tutorial I created.
This pattern is very easy, so that beginners as well as more experienced crocheters, can crochet it with no problems. So don’t be scared if this is your first crochet garment, I can honestly say that you can create it without too much difficulty. I hope this helps, and always remember that you can contact or leave me a comment here. I always answer your questions and queries.
Easy and Straightforward pattern
I used Stylecraft Special Aran in shade cream to create this easy and lacy garment. You can substitute this yarn with any Aran/worsted type yarn you can find. Caron Simply soft, Red Heart Super Saver or Red Heart Soft, or Lion Brand’s Heartland would be great substitutes for example.
The shape of this wrap is very much inspired by the Regency Era fashion, when wraps were long and narrow, giving this simple accessory as very feminine and dainty look, typical of this time in history.
If you wish me to recreate a crochet garment from a specific era in history, please let me know. You know I love to be inspired by the past fashion for my Vintage Crochet Series.
I love the chain arch edging of this pattern, as well as the simple and therapeutic filet crochet stitch.
This chain arch edging actually also reminds me of Medieval designs too, so let me know what you think too.
