The Crochet Le Nuage Wrap is like snuggling up in a big yarn cloud that you never want to leave!
It’s a beginner friendly project, with simple stitches and an easy repeating pattern. The perfect thing to make while watching TV (which is what we are all looking for in a crochet pattern, right?)
This wrap gave me some trouble, friends. All in all, I wound up starting (and frogging) about a dozen versions of it! Partially because I struggled with the maths and shape, also because I’m INCREDIBLY indecisive about color. This wrap was almost dusty blue, then almost blush pink, then almost striped, you get the idea. I finally landed on white because I realized I wear very little pure white garments and it would make such a nice accent piece in my wardrobe! After spending so many hours on it I’m SO glad I stuck with this classic neutral.
I know I wanted to incorporate bobbles into this look, because quite honestly I never met a bobble I didn’t like. I love how they’re staggered and symmetrical – making my organized heart go pitter-pat. And the texture! Bobbles just really lend to the thick, squishy nature of this pattern – that’s why I named it the Le Nuage Wrap (french for cloud!).
If you’d like to shop this look, I’ve got some links below to all the pieces I’m wearing to really elevate this wrap in a romantic way!

Lion Brand Yarn has put together a kit just for this pattern at an AMAZING value! It includes all the yarn you need in your chosen color of Feels Like Butta along with a printed copy of the entire pattern! Just for this week it’s on sale for under $16!
So if you’re thinking about making this stunning wearable, grab the kit before it goes back up to full price! (It’s worth noting that this yarn isn’t available in stores yet and I think it’s every bit worth paying for shipping to get it home!)
