When Red Heart debuted it’s An Italian Story yarn line, I couldn’t wait to get started designing with it! The Ombra caught my eye right away - and when I put the pink and orange colorways together, they immediately reminded me of a beautiful sunrise - and that inspired the Tuscan Sun Wrap! The Tuscan Sun Wrap is a simple, center out, rectangular shawl worked in a four-row repeat. It’s easy to customize for your perfect size. And it’s easy to memorize, making this the perfect pattern to crochet while traveling the Tuscan countryside - or binging travel shows from the couch!

It is constructed top down and uses 200 g of sport weight yarn that is light enough for spring and summer but still gives a bit of warmth, which lends it to be a great layering option for chillier evenings and long walks outside. The Shawl is worked flat, RS facing from right to left.

If you have not tried the Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball yarn yet, I would encourage you to give it a try. Just imagine spending a cool, crisp morning ride out in the country in a beautiful sleigh with the snow on the ground and sun shining through the trees. You are snuggled under a blanket, dressed in your warm clothes with your pretty lace wrap on. The silver bells on the sleigh are making their beautiful music as the sleigh glides through the snow. When I saw the colors of this yarn, this is the picture that came to my mind. Enjoy each moment. Wearing an asymmetrical shawl is so easy to dress up any fashion statement. It takes seconds to drape the wrap around your shoulders and you are off looking so stylish. Add a beautiful brooch for another decorative and timeless look.
