Crochet The Juliette Wrap Pattern: a Boho wrap
This wrap is stunning. I had wanted to crochet a super chunky wrap for a long time. When I came across Wool and The Gang’s Crazy Sexy Wool I knew I had to purchase the yarn and make the wrap of my dreams with it. The Juliette Wrap is perfect for beginners, and features two different shades of the same yarn: I used shades Beige Blonde and Salt and Pepper for this project. Both these yarns are a dream to crochet.
Indeed, this yarn is comprised of over 95% wool depending on the color. Shade Beige Blonde is 100% wool, which is so perfect for the coming Winter. Temperatures have definitely dropped here in the UK, and this wrap is just perfect! It is very high quality and soft yarn, making it a perfect choice for accessories.
I had wanted to crochet a super chunky wrap for a long time, and just could not find the perfect yarn for this until I purchased Crazy Sexy Wool by Wool and The Gang. This is my first experience with this brand, and I am not disappointed! It is a very high quality yarn, with a beautiful color range. I loved matching shades Beige Blonde and Salt and Pepper.
The yarn can be substituted by any of your preferred yarn, as long as it is also a super chunky yarn.
Crochet The Juliette Wrap Pattern: the inspiration
The inspiration came as I said when I came across the yarn. I love Boho projects, especially wraps. There is something so beautiful about a a super chunky wrap. I had wanted to create this wrap using two very different colors for a long time, so when destiny put these two shades on my path I knew this was the beginning of a great project.
I decided that the main part of the wrap was going to feature the Granny Triangle Stitch. Indeed, I love this stitch so much, as it gives off Boho vibes. It’s a super beautiful stitch that I used to crochet The Elena Boho Wrap. The Elena Boho Wrap however was crocheted with much finer yarn. The super chunky Crazy Sexy Wool also gives off major Boho vibes. The wool and the stitch paired up are like a match made in Heaven. I love how this new wrap looks!
To add to the Bohemian vibe of this project, I added three tassels. The chain arch edging adds a very feminine and delicate touch to the whole project.
Let me know what you think of this pattern. I love it, and can’t wait to see your finished creations.

Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.
Create 3 identical tassels as follows.
To make one tassel:
Cut out 2 pieces of yarn measuring about 10″ each, place them to the side.
Take selected cardboard/book measuring about 6.2″ (=17 cm). Wrap your yarn around this piece of cardboard/book about 15 times, or until you are satisfied with the fullness of the yarn.
Now slide your wound up yarn off the cardboard, and lay it on a flat surface. Take one piece of 10″ yarn, and insert it through the center of the wound up yarn you just created.
Making sure your wound up yarn does not come undone, pick it up, and tie the single 10″ piece of yarn you just inserted in the center. Tie this piece of yarn tightly at the top of the wound up yarn to secure it.
Take the second 10″ piece of yarn and place it horizontally on the flat surface. Place the tassel on top of this piece of yarn, making sure that your piece of yarn is placed approximately an inch below the top of the tassel. Gently tie a knot across the tassel, then go around the tassel once again with the piece of yarn, and make a second knot at the front. Fasten off piece of yarn.
Pulling gently on the wound up yarn, take your scissors and cut the bottom pieces of yarn so as to create the tassels. Make sure all the tassel pieces are equal.
Placing each tassel onto project
Place a tassel onto each corner of project (three tassels in total). To fasten on tassel, use the piece of yarn we used at the beginning to secure the top of the tassel. You can use your crochet hook to help with securing the tassel.
Tidy up all loose ends.
