The Adirondack Wrap Crochet Pattern

by | Accessories, All Designs, Crochet, Free Patterns, My Favorites

The Adirondack Wrap uses shapes and colors to create to a long, light and flowing wrap that can also be worn as a scarf. It’s deceptively simple design makes it perfect for on-the-go crocheting, watching-tv crocheting, and sip-and-stitch crocheting! 

Gorgeous drape and color striping.

And boy, did I find that out about projects that are good for sip-and-stitch crocheting! After an amazing trip to New York City to meet my favorite yarn friends and see Lion Brand’s offices, I’ve learned how important it is to have a mindless, simple project on hand. Always. I did bring a current project, but it required following a predetermined design, and counting rows, which I found extremely difficult (read: impossible) when standing at a bar, or paying attention in a meeting, or having a conversation with anyone and still hope to speak coherently. I’m still processing all the different things I did, and things I saw, and things I ate, and conversations I had from the trip, and will share more with you later.

Add a shot of color to your wardrobe with The Adirondack Wrap

As for the inspiration for this wrap scarf, I do a lot of perusing of knit, crochet and fashion photos to find ideas, and I found myself gravitating towards those long knit wraps that stretch from fingertip to fingertip, so I made my own crochet version. It stretches about 8 feet long and 2 feet wide. Unlike triangle wraps, it doesn’t have a center point down the back, but it is in fact, made from triangles! There’s 3 triangles in this wrap, connected together to make a trapezoid. The geometry geek in me is loving all these triangles I’ve been working with, first with the Love Triangles Blanket and then the Tangram Wrap.  I just rewatched Hidden Figures today and these projects remind me of the part in the movie when a young Katherine finds geometric shapes in stained glass windows. 

Wear the Adirondack Wrap as a shawl.

The Adirondack Wrap consists of 3 identical crochet triangles seamed together, using 3 skeins of Lion Brand Mandala Yarn, one for each triangle. If you are able to choose your 3 skeins in person (I bought mine in person at Walmart), you can pick skeins that have similar color patterns, so that the outside rings of color are the same. Pull from the center to work your triangle, and the outer rows of each triangle might be in the same color family. When you seam up those 3 triangles, the seams are nearly invisible, just showing a single color weaving a big W through the wrap. If you can’t choose your skeins, the mattress stitch used to seam the triangles together can still create a band of color between each triangle, creating its own unique pattern.

Adirondack Wrap

The pattern for each of the triangles is super easy. Every row is a variation of double crochet stitches, with increases at the ends and in the middle chain space. Every fourth row uses either a cross double crochet or a mesh double crochet motif to add variety and texture. Also, by using Mandala, you don’t ever have to change yarns to get the gorgeous color changes, the self-striping yarn does it for you. 

Remember to block the triangles once they are complete. I blocked all 3 on top of each other to ensure they all had the same shape, and I did stretch them out to the full triangle shape that I wanted.

I call this a Wrap, but it can easily be a super cozy super scarf too! As long as you use lighter weight yarn, the wrap scarf bundles up really well, and the tassels give it a fun touch at the ends.

Adirondack Wrap also works as a super scarf

Seaming pieces together

I really love this particular colorway in Mandala Yarn, as it reminds me of the changing fall foliage back home in the Hudson Valley. If you make it with other color choices, let me know, I’d love to see how it turns out!

This scarf wrap is so versatile, I’d also love to see how you style it!

Gorgeous colors and a simple design make this the perfect on-the-go crochet project, and results in a long, light and flowing scarf wrap. | 1dogwoof.com

    Somebody help ???????????? I’ve worked the first several rounds and I’m obviously messing up somewhere. It’s folding in on itself almost like a hat. It’s not flat. One comment said to turn? But I don’t see that anywhere on the pattern. Also for row-f I obviously get the chain 3 but where does the dc go? “In the same stitch” does that mean the last stitch of the previous round or the top of the ch 3 from below… I’m so confused and I LOVE this; I SO want to figure it out!

      Did you turn your work at the end of the row?
      Also yes you could chain 3 them dc right into the first stitch of that row. If you are holding the work correctly it should look like a triangle

      Reply
    • ElsIAM

      You have to work in rows not in rounds, so when you come at the end of your row at the front side, turn your crochet around and start a new row on the backside. Keep on doing this and make sure you make 3 DC in first and last stitch.

      Reply
      • Carrie Day

        There are not 3 dc in the last stitch

    I love this pattern! I’m starting my third triangle. Once you complete the first sequence of repeats it goes fast. I’m using the color Warlock. So excited to see the finished wrap! It was intended for a gift but I may keep this one for myself and make another for the gift! Thank you!

    Hi! I love this pattern! I especially love the way you wrote the Instructions! I haven’t been crocheting a full year yet and this is the easiest and best pattern I have ever followed. It saves me so much time and effort by using the “short cut” rows f, m, e and cross-stitch, mesh-up and mesh-down. You were genius to write your pattern this way. I wish more designers would use this scheme. My only issue is the hook size. I’ve just about finished the first triangle and I know I won’t have enough yarn. So I’m going to have to frog the entire triangle and start with a smaller hook. The recommendation on the mandala yarn is 5.00. I believe it will be the right size. Also, it would be helpful if you could state which crochet stitch you used to make gauge. Thanks so much for sharing this pattern. It looks like a work of art!

    I am a seasoned crocheter but I ‘m confused by row f, row m, row e . Makes no sense to me. Is there a hidden code?

      I Think I figured it out. f,m,e is saying first,middle,end stitches throughout pattern. I will try this. Cute pattern, thanks.

      Agreed, the macros are a royal pain in the backside! I don’t know if the paid pattern is written in such an annoyingly convoluted manner and didn’t want the frustration of paying for something I had to fix before I could use it anyway, so I copied and pasted the free pattern into a document file and used ‘find’ and ‘replace’ to put in standard pattern notation instead of trying to memorize which macro was for which stitches and locations.

    Help! I’ve been crocheting for many years but I’m stuck on the very first instruction! I don’t understand the part about working the magic circle but not connecting it. I find that confusing – is there a visual for this? I did look at the video link for magic circle but that didn’t help.

    Reply
    • Elizabeth Ann Curran

      Hi! I believe she just means that you don’t form a circle after you crochet into the magic loop. In some round patterns that start with the loop you crochet into it, tighten it, and then join the last stitch to the top of the first ch 3 with a slip stitch. As this is a triangle and not a round, you tighten the loop and then turn your work to the other side for the next row. You don’t join with a slip stitch, just tighten the loop and turn.

      Hope that helps…

    What is the gauge?Is it the pattern or just a dc swatch?Do chain and then turn the row?Or do you turn and then chain?

    Curious when do you close the magic circle?

    Reply
    • ChiWei

      You close the circle but you don’t join in the round. You’ll turn and work in rows, but you can still pull the beginning tail to close those stitches, and then just secure that end.

    Lovely, easy peasy lemon squeezy pattern. I understand some of the challenging non-crochet terms used in the pattern. But, if it helps anyone, think of her abbreviations as F-First, M- Middle and E-End. These sequences occur on every row, and in that order of the row, First, Middle and End. Also, if you cannot do the magic circle, begin by chaining 3, then add 2 DCs in the first chain next to the hook, followed by a chain and then 3 DC’s, all in the same stitch. Then, turn and start the 2nd row with the F stitches(chain 3, DC in the same stitch), followed by a DC in each DC of the previous row/round. Next, M stitches (2 DCs, ch2, 2 DCs in the CH 2 space of the previous row). Next, DC in each DC of the previous row. And finally, E Stitches – 2 DC in the last DC stitch. Also, note, that after every 3 rows of DCs, you will either create the Cross Stitch Row or the Mesh Stitch Row, making sure the F, M, and E stitches are included. Maybe, draw up a sketch, if that help. Happy crocheting.

      Need assistance on chain 3, DC in the same stitch. Do not understand what same stitch is? I am just starting to crochet. Thank you

    Would it be accurate to say that the stitch counts in the parenthesis at the end of each row do not include the chains in row-m? That’s the only way I can come up with the same count in the first few rows if I am to count the ch 3 at the beginning of each row as a stitch.

    Reply
    • ChiWei

      Yes, that’s correct, because you’ll work into that chain space, so those chains don’t count in the stitch count.

    Oh how simply genius this pattern is! Works up so quickly and shows the colours so beautifully. I’ve made 2 for myself since Christmas.i do only chain2 on the ends and i have added a border to tidy the edges but love, love, love it. Alwaya so jelly when i see how some people come up with such great ideas

    I cant love this wrap any more! It’s so beautiful and was so fast to work up. The F, M, E thing screwed me up for a minute just because I wasnt used to the terminology but once it clicked I was off and stitching. Thank you for sharing and creating this piece.

    Thank you so much for this awesome pattern! I’ve been looking for a shawl pattern without the point in the back and this one is great! I was confused for a few minutes on the “row f, m and e” but it ended up making it very easy to remember. Also, since the pattern is a very easy repeat, there was no need to keep looking back at the pattern. I will be making lots of these in many different colors and different weights of yarn for sure! I have one triangle done and getting ready to start second and I just started making it yesterday! Thank you again for a wonderful pattern!
