Crochet Shell Wrap
My daughter saw this wrap in Simply Handmade magazine and really wanted one. The pattern is also available on www.loveknitting.com but is called Seaside Shawl by Anna Nikipirowicz. My daughter had intended to make it herself but I had some yarn left over from the Amigurumi Teddy Bears and decided to make it for her as a surprise. It was challenging at first but once I had worked it out they were very quick to make. Kayleigh was really pleased with it.
The pattern was worked mainly in UK Treble Crochet/tr [US Double Crochet/dc] making each shell and then sewing them together in a specified layout.
The finished size is approximately 196cm wide by 39cm high.

Peter Pan Cupcake (shades - Spearmint 822, White 800, Rainbow Dust 810).
50g (1.75oz/98yds/90m) balls.
Weight category: UK DK [US 3/Light worsted, DK].
Tension/gauge: 19 stitches x 26 rows = 4″ (10cm) on size 3.75mm/UK 3.75mm [US F/5] - 4.50mm/UK 7 [US 7] hook.
The crochet hook I used was a 4 mm/UK 8 [US G/6].
I would give the Peter Pan Cupcake yarn a 3 out of 5 for the following reasons:-
- It was slightly difficult to work with because you can’t see the stitches;
- There is only a small choice of colours available;
- The feel of it is brilliantly soft and cuddly;
- The cost, however, is, expensive - I paid between £1.80 and £2.85 per 50g ball;
- Would I use this yarn again? YES, DEFINITELY.
I hope this brings you creative joy and inspires you to start your own yarn-tastic journey.
Let’s get yarning!
