Being a lover of shawls and wraps, making them is something that I miss when I don’t for a while and this pattern sort of fell out of my brain and onto the hook. The repeating stitch pattern was, in my mind, a sort of stacked diamond but tweaking the stitches and placement a little I finally came to repeat which created this rectangle wrap pattern.
As with all my shawl and scarf designs in 2021, I am naming this pattern after a female member of my family. Simone is one of my older sisters. My system for deciding names is to pick the one that jumps out at me once a design is complete. When I was blocking this wrap I noticed that the stitches appear to create an hourglass / sand timer type shape. I can’t unsee that now, but I also immediately thought of Simone as she has what I would definitely call an hourglass figure.
Yarn and Materials
To create my easy rectangle wrap pattern, I used 3 Hobbii Twister Solids. If you haven’t used this yarn previously, this is a solid and complimentary version to the Twister yarn. 100g, 400m / 437yds, 55% cotton and 45% acrylic sport weight yarn. It has all the qualities that we love from Twister in a single colour and while I normally use the caked variety to create my crochet shawl and wrap patterns, I am designing with my stash currently and thought I would try something different.
Easy crochet rectangle shawl pattern info & tips
The repeating stitch pattern in this easy rectangle shawl is made up of two different combination stitches stacked. The only thing to note is that you should pay attention to which row of the repeat you are on. If, like me, you ‘watch tv’ and crochet then it can be easy to get carried away in the wrong place.
Gauge – I am not generally a person who sticks to gauge strictly in shawl patterns. I go with my favourite hook or the yarn and adjust depending upon the look and feel of the piece I am working on. I am a fairly tight stitcher. It is more important that you have a fairly uniform and stretchy fabric while you work this piece – it grows ALOT in blocking. This in turn opens up the stitch pattern.
Terms: US crochet terms.
Skill level: Beginner, easy
Yarn: 3 x Twister Solid OR 1 x Twister & 1 x Twister Solid, OR 1200m of any sport or fingering weight yarn – Scheepjes Whirl & Whirlette, or a custom cake from somewhere like Crochet UK or Flo’s Yarn Basket would also work.
