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!

Crocheting shawls is my thing and your Le Nuage Wrap is so beautiful.
? I love this!!
Hi there, I really appreciate your efforts but honey, I’ve been crocheting for years and I could not make heads or tails out of your pattern. Usually, if someone has made some mistakes I can still figure it out as I go but I just couldn’t with yours.
It’s too bad because the pictures show a very lovely finished project that I was looking forward to completing. ?
So sorry you found the pattern troubling. Did you try the video tutorial?
Kathy Gill says
After watching the video there is a typo on row 3 after the ch 2 sp – the directions say “into ch 2 space, DC, ch 1, sk 1 and so on, it should say “into ch 2 space, ch 1, sk 1, DC, sk 1 and so on. There’s a DC in there that doesn’t make sense
You’re exactly right, Liz. thanks! I’ve amended the pattern 🙂

This is beautiful!! Of all the things I’ve done, or have patterns for, this is what my mother would like … in a color called Old Rose. She likes long wide scarves. Do to a minor stroke several years ago I can’t seem to add two & two (pretty bad for someone who did accounting work), so I have no clue how to come up with the multiple for patterns. If it’s not too much to ask could I get your help with this pattern. Thank You very much for sharing your passion and talent.
Thanks for the beautiful wrap , I love it and I am just beginning to hook and I am from Belgium .????

Your shawl pattern is lovely. I watched the video tutorial and my effort so far is spot-on as to row repeats and stitch counts. I love the variety of the rows. I’m using Red Heart “Unforgettable” in a grey gradient for a gift for a retiring co-worker. I do have one question. I am now on Row 12 and find that there is a point in the center of the top side (where the beginning closed circle round is) as well as at the bottom of the shawl. Will this point even out as more rows are added and the width grows? I will be excited to try the “Butta” yarn when it gets into stores. Thanks! I will post a project photo to your pattern listing on Ravelry when I’m finished.
That sounds wonderful! Yes, it will begin as a bit of a diamond shape, but even out with more rows and be perfectly snuggly when you’re all done. Cheers!
I am new to crochet and your pattern is working up beautifully! I just have a question out of curiosity. How do you get 4 increases per row? Is it 1 in the first stitch, 2 in the point on the triangle, and 1 in the last stitch?? Is it increased by 2 in the middle because of the chain 2? Just curious!
You’re exactly right, Hannah! Since you’re working into the Ch 2 space with 2 additional stitches on each round that’s adding in two more at the point and one each additionally on each end of the triangle 🙂
Thanks for this great patern!
I am making this now whit my best friend.
I hope it turns out as buatiful as yours!
This is a beautiful pattern. Just wondering if it could be made with a lighter weight yarn (2 or 3). If so, how would the pattern need to be adjusted? Thanks so much for your help.
Certainly! I would use a smaller hook (try out different ones to find the right gauge or go with what your yarn label recommends) and just add on a few sets of the pattern repeats until you reach about the same dimensions as mine. Other than that, the pattern should be followed as written. Hope this helps!
Row 3 is missing some instructions. It was coming out wrong, so after several tries and several frogs I watched the video and you definitely left out instructions in the written pattern. Also, it would be so helpful if you indicated how many stitches are needed to get to the last stitch in each row. When it says “dc to last”, that is a bit unclear. This is supposed to be an easy pattern, but beginners need it to be more clear.

Love this wrap. I was going over the directions and there is no row 63. Is row 64 suppose to be 63? Thank you!
You’re exactly right!
