Another recent crochet project was the Onarum wrap. This popped up on Ravelry as the November CAL on Sharon Maher’s Laughing Purple Goldfish Designs group. It was especially designed to take advantage of the long colour changes in Bendigo Woollen Mills Murano yarn. Wouldn’t you know it, I was about to place an order at Bendigo for cotton, so it was simple enough to add a ball (or two) of Murano to my order and get hooking! And this is what I ended up with.
This wrap takes less than one ball of Murano. It is designed to be worn across the shoulders and tied in front, as in the above photo, and the tassels help to keep it in place and to add a little pizazz.
However, I am more likely to wear it as a scarf, so had some fun trying different ways to drape and tie it.
I really love the colourway. Perfect for me since I became a red head!
This was a fun project, and it was quite enjoyable watching the others taking part in the CAL finish their wraps and see the different yarns and colourways that they used. I’ll definitely be using this pattern again. More details are on my Ravelry project page.
