A little while back, Sarah Shrimpton and her fellow Blogstars were set a challenge from the Stylecraft team - to do something fabulously creative in knit or crochet with their flagship yarn, using Special Aran or Chunky. How super! Sarah agreed agreed, of course and chose Special Chunky in these rich shades - aren't these colours lush?! And it really is very, very soft and squidgy!
But what to make....? Sarah toyed with a few ideas, but decided on a mega-wrap. (As someone who feels the cold and has children who insist on leaving doors and windows open, she's all about big shawls and blanket-y things at this time of year).
Sarah wanted to make something incredibly simple that would show off the gorgeous colours and be quick and easy to make (our favourite sort of project) And so a half-Granny design seemed perfect.
This kit includes 8 balls of Stylecraft Special Chunky yarn in the shades below. The pattern for this fabulous wrap is available for free on
- Storm Blue
- Pale Rose
You will need an 8mm crochet hook to make this wrap.
