It’s been hard keeping the secret of the completed Phoenix Wrap from you for so long! I appreciate the patience of everyone who has been eagerly waiting for the “big reveal.” But, first, if you’re just hearing about the Phoenix Wrap crochet-a-long…

Phoenix Wrap Crochet-a-Long with Underground Crafter, Lion Brand, and Sue Rock Originals Everyone, Inc

Phoenix Wrap Crochet-a-Long by Underground Crafter - end-of-CAL giveaway prizes collageNow that I’ve gotten you all excited, let me share some background. As I mentioned in last week’s post, I had the chance to hear Sue Rock from Sue Rock Originals Everyone, Inc. speak at my local yarn shop, and I was really moved by what she had to say. When I was designing the Phoenix Wrap, I wanted to make something that could truly be a wardrobe staple for a domestic violence survivor who might be rebuilding her life. I knew I had to go beyond the length of my typical shawl design so that the finished size would look great on someone taller than me. I also wanted the extra length because it provides so many more styling options. So, how will you (or the person you donate it to) wear your Phoenix Wrap? Here are a few options…

The Belted Cardigan is my absolute favorite! Just wrap the shawl over your shoulders, add a belt, and then turn down the inner borders like a collar. You could make your own belt in Lion Brand Jeans yarn, too, since you should have enough left over from at least one of the colors to do it.

Today’s pattern is the final section of the Phoenix Wrap, for the borders. I made mine in Color C, which accentuated the picot lace when compared to the darker Side Panels in Color B.

Then, use the lace border as a “button hole.” (Be sure to pass the button through the border before attaching it to your shawl to make sure it fits through the lace.)
