Cloria Wrap

 

Cloria is a greek name that means “goddess of spring”. This wrap has a unique shape that has a triangular shawl with a long tail – almost like a scarf attached to the side. You will have enough fabric to wrap over your shoulders and neck to keep you feeling like a goddess on those cool spring nights.

When trying to come up with a design, I knew I wanted something that screamed spring. I decided to use the Pantone color of the year “Greenery” as my starting point. As part of round 13 for the newest Battle of the Stitches challenge, we used the Slanted Puff stitch so I did the first section of the wrap with that as my main stitch, then I added a second section using an airy stitch combo so it wouldn’t get too heavy. The result is a beautiful wrap in the shape of a scalene triangle.

 

Cloria Wrap has an asymmetrical shape. Crochet pattern by Ambassador Crochet.

  1. Ooh, beautiful shawl/wrap! I love the green anyway, but I’d prob go for a rust too (i.e. Make two!) so a spring and an autumn option! (Btw, I can’t enter your rafflecopter as I don’t do twitter)

    • Oh, and Ravelry link is broken. Kx

      • I fixed the links. Thank you so much for letting me know!

    • You don’t have to enter the twitter option. Any of the options will get you entered, so just by commenting you have a chance.

      I would love to see this in rust. It would be perfect for fall!

      • It says that I need to do the twitter thing to unlock the other ways to enter on rafflecopter. Nvm. I’ll just stick to commenting. (Btw, I’m not an early bird. I’m in UK)

      • I’ll check into it. It wasn’t required so I’m not sure why it’s giving you that. If I have to I’ll remove the twitter option.

      • Kathryn, thanks so much for your patience. The giveaway box is set up so you can bypass the twitter option if you want to try to enter the fb option.

      • Thanks for fixing it for us non-twitter ppls! =)

  2. Beautiful design. I have a Lavender purple yarn that thos would look so pretty with this ❤️

  3. This is beautiful!! That color is gorgeous! My natural reaction color is pink, I use it in almost everything because it’s my favorite. But I also want it to be somewhat neutral to go with lots of outfits. Guess I’d have to make two!! One pink and maybe a second cream or light tan one.

  4. I would love to make the wrap in a bright yellow.

  5. Love this design. I think I’d make it in a pink or purple

  6. I think this would be gorgeous worked up in a bright blue color!

  7. What a beautifulwrap! I love the “Greenery” showcased but would probably get more use out of the “Surfmommy” colorway.

  8. Beautiful wrap

  9. My first thought seeing this pretty shawl was a “seafoam green”, then I thought of a nice rich “wine” and of course my go to black 😍

  10. Absolutely stunning wrap!

  11. This is so pretty! I would go with a rich, dark purple for mine.

  12. Love the color green, I would add some white to make it pop! Love this design

  13. I think it would be gorgeous using a coral color or maybe a gradient cake.

  14. I’d love to make it in purple!

  15. I would love it grey.

  16. I would love it in either aqua or a Smokey lavender. It’s beautiful!

  17. What would a gradient colored yarn look like? That’s what I’d like to try!

  18. Beautiful! I think I would make a bright yellow one!

  19. Beautiful! – I’d try to crochet it in multicoloured yarn.

  20. I love your green– but I would probably impulse choose a color at the store :)

    • Lisa, that’s how I ended up with this green! :)

  21. Very beautiful. I think I’d like it in soft grey

  22. Beautiful! I love it. I would do mine in either teak or gold.

  23. The green you use is very eye-catching and I would probably make it in that color for my mom who loves green. For me, it would have to be in something blue, maybe turquoise…

  24. I love it in this green, it’s perfect for spring. However I think I would make one in a light blue.

  25. Love it! How about a nice light grey? Yep!!!

  26. I would love it in purple.

  27. I was sure I commented the day this was poued but can’t find it here now. I love this and would use the same Spring green! By the way, I just made a typo but can’t see it – the blue ink is too faint to read, but I see the red mark, lol) I’d love to make it for my daughter who will be chilly in a late April wedding in a sleeveless navy dress…I’d maybe make it in black? Just for when they have to stand around waiting for pics.

  28. I would like to make this in a denim blue.

  29. I am new to you Facebook page but so far I love it! Hope I win a copy of your wrap

  30. I would make it in a variegated gray

  31. turquoise is my favorite color so I would love to make it in that color thanks for the chance to win!

  32. I think I would make it in a sparkly black!
