Free Crochet Pocket Shawl Pattern- Sugar Plum Pocket Wrap

Posted on December 01, 2020 by Lorene Eppolite | 0 Comments

 

The Sugar Plum Pocket Wrap is an oversized, extra cozy wrap with some unique features! The stitch pattern is easy to memorize, but made with a great mix of stitches for tons of texture. Then the whole wrap is turned on its end for even more interest. Finally, pockets are added – after being crocheted at an angle. This pattern will have you crocheting in all directions, for a finished pocket shawl that’s a wearable piece of art!
