Crochet The Siren’s Call Boho Wrap
Hello everyone! This week I am bringing to you a brand new and easy project on how to crochet The Siren’s Call Boho Wrap. I love this wrap because it really has bohemian and mermaid vibes. The vibrant yet subdued colours are really beautiful, and make this wrap a great and versatile accessory.

Do you love wraps as much as I do? Shawls and wraps are my go to when I am feeling like a good, simple and repetitive kind of project. I can get lost in the repeat rows, which then create the most beautiful crochet shawl.
Crochet The Siren’s Call Boho Wrap: the inspiration
I was truly inspired to create a wrap when I set eyes on Lion Brand’s Mandala Ombre yarn. Indeed, I saw this gorgeous new yarn and was enthralled with the shade “Pure”. Indeed, this colour and ombre effect really reminded me of the ocean, the pure and everlasting beauty of this water element. I visualised a mermaid and her mysterious and magnetic dwelling place.
As you may have guessed, as soon as I purchased this yarn, I started thinking of a wrap pattern that would do this beautiful yarn justice. I crocheted this shawl quite a while back, and decided to film the video last Saturday. As soon as I started speaking of this wrap on camera, I was once again in love!
Lion Brand yarns always have a way of enchanting me! You can check out my Feminine Headband crocheted with Lion Brand’s Ferris Wheel yarn here: Crochet A Feminine Headband.
It’s a super easy project and uses one of my favourite yarns. It is also a very useful and versatile accessory to have during the Winter.
Crochet The Siren’s Call Boho Wrap: a very beginner friendly project
This V shaped wrap is a very beginner friendly project. Indeed, it uses double crochet stitches in a very simple repeat pattern to create this beautiful wrap.
The repeat pattern used, as well as the shades of pink and blue from the yarn, create a very bohemian looking wrap. I love how feminine the colours are too, making this wrap extra interesting.
If you are a beginner at crochet, or if you have never crocheted a garment before, then this project is perfect for you. It really only requires a bit of crochet knowledge to make this wrap, so if you are a beginner this is perfect for you!
