The Crochet Le Nuage Wrap is one of my favorite patterns from last spring so I’m bringing it back in a new fall feature!
You might remember this pattern from when I first posted it here on the blog earlier this year. This post holds the same pattern, showing you a bit of a different way to style it!
SWEATER PATTERNS I LOVE (& you should too)
I used Lion Brand’s new Feels Like Butta yarn for this project and it was definitely the right choice! It’s the softest yarn I’ve ever felt and it truly does feel like butta – honest!
So what type of fiber is so soft? Polyester. (I know, I was surprised too!) When I think of polyester I think of something plasticky and, well, cheap. I was so surprised to learn that Butta is 100% polyester and has the smoothest, softest hand I’ve felt. This yarn feels sort of like chenille and sort of like suede. A lot of polyester chenille-style yarns shred and lose their fuzziness as you work with it and it’s kept me away from yarns like this in the past, but Feels Like Butta does none of that!
It was perfect for this wrap that’s got loads of bobble stitches as well as open skipped stitches, so the chainette style spin of the yarn lends itself to wonderful stitch definition. It really takes this entire design to the next level!
