This is a free winter crochet wrap pattern that is super warm and cozy to wrap yourself in! It uses interlocking crochet technique which produces squishy fabric.
I am so excited to bring you this reversible winter crochet wrap pattern. It uses a fun technique that creates a different pattern on the front and the back of the wrap.
This way you can get two different looking wraps in one. Half the work for double the results, I love that!
Because of the technique I have used, the finished wrap is thick and extra warm! It is the perfect accessory to snuggle into when you want to watch TV or even wrap around your shoulders sat by the campfire.
You can also use different color combinations for your wrap. There are one main color and two contrast colors to choose.
The main color runs throughout the whole wrap pattern creating thin vertical stripes whereas the two contrast colors run in thick stripes horizontally!

Techniques I used For This Winter Crochet Wrap
For a keen eye crocheter the from of this wrap might look a little familiar.
It uses the interlocking crochet technique. I have previously used this technique in some of my patterns and loved the results.
Other patterns that use this technique:
- Interlocking Crochet Cushion Cover
- Men’s Mittens Crochet Pattern – Free Explorer Mittens
- Crochet Beanie Easy Pattern – Anton Beanie
The difference is, that this time we will be using the technique in rows rather that rounds. However, the basic principle remains the same.
The only difference are the additional rows you work on the wrong side or the back of the crochet wrap for winter.
This is the main reason why the wrap is super thick and warm as the rows on the back create an additional layer of stitches.

I have also included a step by step photos to show you what the rows of the shawl should look like. As well as plenty of close up photos to show you how different the two sides look.
Please note: The original sample shown in photos has been made in Deramores Studio DK yarn which has been discontinued.
I find that Stylecraft Special DK is the best alternative with a wide range of colors. However, you can use any DK weight yarn.

Winter Crochet Wrap Pattern Notes
- The wrap is worked along the long edge
- For the colour changes you do not need to fasten off and join new colour each two rows. Simply carry the yarn neatly up the side. This will be covered when we attach the fringe to the sides.
- If the wrap is curling in slightly, loosen your tension on the FPtr stitches. This can also be fixed with blocking afterwards.
