This oversize wrap combines simple stitches with a creative twist to make them pop. Created all with dc and chains only. Some of the chains are left alone for an open look, while others are twisted into a jacobs ladder. These changes in texture give this wrap a great overall look that is easy to achieve.
What’s more, this pattern can be worn in a variety of different ways for multiple different looks!

Lion Brand Heartland in Yellowstone
750 yards or 3 skeins
6.5mm (K) Hook
21” wide by 52” long
13sts and 7 rows = 4”
ch(s) – chain(s), dc – double crochet, st(s) – stitch(es),
FDC– foundation double crochet- Picture tutorial HERE
Chain 4 (counts as 1st fdc). Yarn over and insert hook in 4th chain from hook. *Yarn over and pull up loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through 1 loop creating a chain st, (this is an important step but easy to forget). Yarn over again and pull through first two loops on hook (two loops remaining). Yarn over again and pull through last two loops on hook. This completes the second fdc (remember your 1st ch4 counted as the 1st fdc). To stitch the next fdc, yarn over and insert the hook into the chain made in the 2nd fdc and repeat from *
CSDC– Chainless Starting Double Crochet- Turn work. Pull up a loop to the height of a normal dc. YO with the loop so that the hook is behind the loop. Insert the hook into the first st of row. Compete a normal dc (YO and draw through st (3 loops on hook). YO and draw through first two loops on hook. YO and draw through last two loops on hook). Here is a fantastic tutorial by Moogly
- Ch3 can be substituted for the CSDC
Row 1: FDC 78
Row 2: Turn. 1CSDC. 1dc in each of the next 5sts. *Ch6. Skip 6sts. 1dc in each of the next 6sts***. Ch6. Skip 2sts. 1dc in each of the next 6sts**. Repeat from * to ** 3x. Repeat from * to *** 1 time.
Row 3 -95: Turn. 1CSDC. 1dc in each of the next 5sts. *Ch6. Skip 6sts. 1dc in each of the next 6sts. Repeat from* to end.
Row 96: Here you will be completing three sets of Jacobs Ladder. This can be accomplished a few different ways. I use the hook to create my ladder.
Leave the first set of chains be. Make a Jacobs Ladder with the next set and repeat, alternating leaving the chains alone and creating the ladder.
Turn your work so that the long side is away from you. Pick up the first Ch6 (closest to you) and twist it completely around to form a loop. Insert your hook in this loop. Insert hook under the next Ch6 and pull it through the first loop. Repeat all the way down (do not twist the chains, just pull through the loop). When you reach the end of the chains, remove your hook, holding the loop and place a stitch marker in this loop to hold the ladder in place for the final row.
There is also a great tutorial by Moogly available HERE
Row 97: Turn. 1CSDC. 1dc in each of the next 5sts. *Ch6. 1dc in each of the next 6sts. Insert hook in the loop that is be-ing held by stitch marker, remove stitch marker and sl st loop onto hook. 1dc in each of the next 6sts**. Repeat from * to ** two times. Ch6. 1dc in each of the next 6sts.
Row 98: Turn. 1CSDC. 1dc in each of the next 5sts. *1dc in each of the next 6 chains. 1dc in each of the next 6sts. 1dc in the sl st created to close loop. 1dc in each of the next 6sts**. Repeat from * to ** two times. 1dc in each of the next 6 chains. 1dc in each of the next 6 sts. <78>
