The Slate Wrap was designed for crocheters of all abilities to be able to make. What’s essentially a giant rectangle turns into a gorgeous wrap that’s easy to style and wear. Whether you’ve crocheted for decades or are just learning the ropes, this pattern is a great project that uses basic stitches to keep it simple with colorwork to add interest.
ABOUT OUR DESIGNER
Hi there! I’m Melissa, the designer behind Woods and Wool. I am a wife, maker, and lover of the outdoors. My grandma taught me how to crochet when I was young, and the craft has stayed close to my heart. I’ve come a long way since then – Nowadays you’ll find me designing simple, modern designs. I always have the intention of creating timeless, easy-to-wear pieces that I could easily style into my own everyday wardrobe.
As a designer, maker, and human, my goal is the same: to inspire, spread positivity, and share the joy of creating with others.
