Blushberry Plaid Tartan Wrap Crochet Pattern


I’ve been a fan of tartan and plaid since I was a teenager. I owned plaid skirts, scarves, handbags, etc. So why wouldn’t I attempt to crochet something with a plaid pattern?

I’ve seen some crocheted blankets and scarves made using the gingham plaid style and while I like the look of them, I can’t imagine doing all the colour changing.

More recently, I encountered tartan/plaid blankets made using techniques where you weave in the vertical colours. While these techniques are great for blankets, I always wondered how I could adapt it to make something a little more delicate and wearable.

Recently, I got a chance to try out some yarn from Good Loops Yarn. I fell in love with their Nurturing Fibres bamboo blend yarn. To find out more about my first impression of this yarn, click here.

I attempted to use their sock-weight (superfine-1) yarn Eco-Lush to recreate this scarf that I once owned. The final product turned out perfect. Not too heavy or thick and it had a beautiful drape.

Once you are done, you should have something like the following:

Weaving

The next part of the pattern is to weave in the vertical stripes! When you get to this part, it’s pretty exciting, but the task is a bit tedious. I thought I was going to give up partway through, but luckily I didn’t and the results were well worth it!

What you want to do is start off with a strand of yarn that is twice the length of your wrap plus some extra length for the fringe. Thread it through a yarn needle and fold the piece of yarn in half. You want to weave in 2 strands at the same time between each double crochet stitch.

When you weave in the next strand, make sure that it alternates the “under” and “over” rows to give it that woven appearance. Try not to pull the yarn too tight to avoid bunching the wrap.

When you get to the other end, cut the closed end of the folded piece of yarn to release your yarn needle.

Tip: I purposely weaved in my vertical stripes on top of a carpet so that the carpet could help me “grip” the crocheted piece well enough so that it wouldn’t move and shift around as much.

Repeat this process between each double crochet stitch with the following colour pattern:

  • 13 columns of Seashell
  • 4 columns of Cobblestone
  • 4 columns of Vanilla
  • 4 columns of Cobblestone
  • 4 columns of Vanilla
  • 4 columns of Cobblestone
  • 13 columns of Seashell
  • 2 columns of Vanilla
  • 13 columns of Seashell
  • 4 columns of Cobblestone
  • 4 columns of Vanilla
  • 4 columns of Cobblestone
  • 4 columns of Vanilla
  • 4 columns of Cobblestone
  • 13 Columns of Seashell

Pretty soon, you’ll see the plaid pattern evolve.

Once your wrap is complete and you’ve made sure there’s no bunching in the weaving, you can fasten the ends of the yarn to create the fringe.

Grab your 2 strands of yarn. Insert your hook between the two strands of yarn. Wrap both strands of yarn around the hook. Pull up a loop. Wrap both strands of yarn around the hook again. Pull through.

  1. Grab your 2 strands of yarn.
  2. Insert your hook between the two strands of yarn.
  3. Wrap both strands of yarn around the hook.
  4. Pull up a loop.
  5. Wrap both strands of yarn around the hook again.
  6. Pull through.
