Crochet The Sweet Lilac Edwardian Wrap: a typical Edwardian accessory
I love vintage crochet, and I really enjoy being inspired by past times and fashion for my projects. The Edwardian Era is one of my favourites! If you are a fan of Downtown Abbey, you will love this wrap.
The Edwardian Era takes place in England under the reign of King Edward the 7th, from 1901 to 1911 (sometimes extended until the end of World War I in 1818). This era in fashion is characterised by feminine and slim lines, beautiful accessories, and jewel tones. It is a lovely era celebrating modern femininity!
Do you love vintage crochet as much as me? I am so inspired by vintage crochet at the moment! I have a new vintage crochet project coming soon, inspired by the series Bridgerton. So please do consider subscribing to my weekly newsletter if you wish to know when this free crochet pattern and video tutorial is released.

Crochet The Sweet Lilac Edwardian Wrap: a sweet take on a vintage wrap
I love the Edwardian Era, as it is so feminine, romantic and elegant. My inspiration for this shawl comes from old engravings and photographs dating back to this era. I also love watching films and series from this time, so these images did inspire me to. Who doesn’t love watching Downton Abbey or Titanic? I love watching these beautiful renditions of the Edwardian Era.
Lilac is a very romantic and feminine colour, and was often used for accessories or dresses during this era. The slim lines and dainty pattern of the shawl are also reminiscent of Edwardian fashion. You could make the wrap even longer than I did, to make it even more romantic looking.
I used Sirdar N°1 DK for this project, but you can use whichever yarn you prefer, if it a DK/Light 3 weight yarn. You can therefore personalise this crochet pattern to suit your exact tastes!
