Crochet The Marissa Dainty Wrap: the inspiration
The inspiration for this wrap came from the yarn. Indeed, I absolutely fell in love with Cygnet’s DK acrylic yarn in shade Mother of Pearl. This yarn is beautiful, and has a lot of pearly grey and pink hues. It can be substituted with any of your favorite DK/Light 3 yarn, such as Lion Brand Mandala yarn for example. If you are able to purchase the Cygnet yarn, I definitely recommend it as it so soft and beautiful.
As you know, I love pink and grey, so this yarn was perfect for me! Let me know if you use it, or if you have used it in the past.
I also really enjoy working some projects with light yarn (DK yarn in British terms). Indeed, it is fine and creates the most delicate projects. I find crochet to be the perfect way of creating beautiful handmade garments.
I seem to love frilly borders at the moment. You can find one of my latest crochet wraps with a frilly border here, for the Polina Half Circle Wrap. It’s super easy and I love how it turned out! I find frilly borders very feminine and dainty.
Crochet The Marissa Dainty Wrap: behind the name
I decided to call this wrap The Marissa Wrap. The delicate and feminine shape of this yarn is perfect. The color is so pretty and mysterious, and truly reminds me of the sea. I therefore wanted to name it something reminiscent of the ocean and the water element. After some research, I came across the name “Marissa”, which is one of my favorite names. It means “drop of the sea”, which is so perfect for this project.
I hope you enjoy this dainty and feminine crochet shawl as much as I did. Let me know if you recreate it, you can always tag me on Instagram, or join my Facebook crochet group for more yarn related conversations. The link to my private and free Facebook group can be found below.
