The Monti Wrap, a rectangular lace crochet shawl pattern

Take a walk on the sophisticated side of crochet with the Monti Wrap, a new crochet pattern from TL Yarn Crafts in collaboration with Shibui Knits.

I had the great opportunity to partner with my new friends at Shibui Knits on a special project. The Modern Wrap Collection elevates the classic “wrap” concept to bring you 4 beautiful knit and crochet patterns for summer.

Take Your Shawl Making to the Next Level

One quick search of Ravelry shows how knitters and crocheters continue to explore the many shapes of wraps and shawls. From triangles to circles and everything in between, there’s no limit to what a wrap can be.

When I was first approached by Shibui Knits to join their Modern Wrap Collection, I was overjoyed by the honor. Shibui Knits is known for this sophisticated, upscale aesthetic. For the Monti Wrap, I took on the task of looking at wraps a whole new way and designing something to surprise the crochet community.

Realizing the Magnificence of Mohair

As a crocheter, I never really felt like mohair was made for my use. I’ve seen it in dozens of beautiful knit sweaters and scarves, but the thin, fuzzy fiber didn’t make much of an appearance in modern crochet designs.

I explored mohair for the first time when I released my Skyward Kerchief. When holding it double with a fingering weight yarn, mohair gives the fabric a gentle halo and also adds warmth to the finished piece.

For the Monti Wrap, an ever-so-thin strand of Shibui Knits Silk Cloud is held double with Lunar, a merino/silk blend that is also laceweight. As you can guess, the crocheted fabric is silky smooth to the touch and drapes like an absolute dream.

Monti Wrap Pattern Details

The Monti Wrap is an intermediate-level crochet pattern. This rectangular wrap is worked from the short edge. A central lace section is flanked by bold color-blocked stripes with a built-in complementary border. The result is a touch of luxury that looks much more challenging to make than it actually is.

    I don’t think I’ve ever had the overwhelming urge to make a wrap until the moment I saw this post. Likewise for using mohair.

      That makes my heart to happy! I’m truly in love with this wrap and I can’t wait to see how other makers put their own spin on it 🙂

    This is stunning! I embraced mohair with the skyward shawl…it was a leap of faith and I’m glad I took it! This looks like a fun, challenging (in a good way) pattern and the end result looks so elegant. I love in the south and a wrap like this would be perfect for this almost cool nights!❤️

    This is really beautiful! I have about 1,046 yards of a merino/silk/yak blend in a gorgeous color, but I don’t know if this would be enough yardage to make this wrap. I’m halfway through a mulled cider cowl, too 🙂 Love your patterns!!
