The Anna Maria Crochet Wrap is the perfect Wrap for Spring and Summer.

The Anna Maria Crochet Wrap

The Anna Maria wrap was created after visiting Anna Maria Island in Florida while on vacation. The striking contrast between the white sand and the blue water was mesmerizing and the white caps of the gentle waves entranced me for hours.


I love a good wrap on the beach. I can wrap it around my shoulders while sitting in the sand and relaxing, or wrap it around my waist while hunting for sea shells. The open lace design allows the breeze to still flow through, and the cotton blend yarn is breathable and lightweight.


But this wrap is great for more than just the beach, and the repetitive stitch pattern is relaxing and beautiful. As the weather starts to warm and the evenings are still cool, this wrap will become a grab and go item to wrap around your shoulders at dinner, an evening walk, or sitting outside and watching the stars.



I used Premier Cotton Fair yarn which is a light weight #2 or fine yarn. The cotton acrylic blend makes it soft, but also strong. The yarn comes in a ball with 317 yards (290 m) and is the perfect yarn for a light weight wrap.



Depending on the length of the wrap you want to make you will need between 3 and 5 balls of this yarn. The pattern includes 2 different lengths for you to choose from, 60" (152 cm) or 76" (193 cm) and the row repeats are broken down for 2 colors. I used the colors Succulent (a beautiful blue) and Cream (a solf white) for my wrap.
