Narcissus, summer lace crochet wrap inspiration
The Narcissus oversized summer lace crochet wrap pattern is the second design I created using my flower colour theme for 2022 and inspires the name of the design, Narcissus or Daffodils, being the colour of the month for March.
After I finished making my first Carnation, I had a couple of different shawl ideas running around my mind. I knew I wanted to do something else with the column and bowl stitch combination to create a summer lace crochet wrap pattern, but it took a few different tries to create the stitch repeat that I was aiming for.
Oversized summer lace crochet shawl yarn & materials
To create my lace crochet shawl, I used a custom colour from Flo’s yarn basket, designed specifically with the flower theme in mind, Daffodil. 1250m 4ply gradient yarn cake, this is a yellow gradient which fades to white, and is a glorious happy vibrant ombre. Using flowers to create colours and name the design was easy with this oversized summer lace crochet wrap pattern. The open stitches used and the bright colour just call for something bright and summery. To find out more about this yarn, you can check out the review on Flo’s yarn here.
For alternatives to make your own Narcissus lace crochet shawl, my favourite options would probably be Twister and Twister Solid from Hobbii, or Scheepjes Whirl and Whirlette or similar. You will need the whole 1250 yards – I just about had enough to finish the wrap myself!
It is also possible to make this oversized summer lace crochet shawl in DK or 3 weight yarn. It would increase the size and weight of it, however, if you chose a natural fibre or blend yarn and a slightly larger hook you will get a still quite lacy and light shawl but also something that will work well for evenings when it gets a little colder than expected. For this I would choose Stylecraft Naturals Bamboo Cotton as it has fantastic drape and weight without being too heavy.

Narcissus Wrap pattern info & tips
Narcissus is an easy oversized summer lace crochet wrap and a great beginner project. Using familiar stitches over a longer repeat this pattern works up quickly with a steady pace/rhythm to it. Worked across a long chain and extended repeat, this lace crochet shawl pattern is a yarn eater. Counting is required as it is easy to get lost in the repeat – sometimes simple is the hardest thing. Use stitch markers definitely. I have highlighted the centre as a space to mark within the pattern for this lace crochet wrap but additional markers at the start/end of the repeating sections will also help you to keep on track.
Like all my shawls, gauge isn’t super important for success in this summer lace crochet shawl pattern, consistent clear defined stitches are. I crochet quite tightly and have included an unblocked gauge.
