Let me introduce you to the pumpkin blanket wrap. It is my most used crochet item that I have made in years! You know those things you crochet and end up using more than you could imagine? This is one of those crochet projects that ended up being so useful. A soft easy to wear blanket wrap when there is a chill in the air.
This pattern is a guideline to how I make this blanket wrap out of the fuzzy cakes of yarn that I had on hand from 2018. This silky and cozy yarn is meant for all the things that touch our skin and keep close to our body. It is wonderfully soft and is sturdy to hold up to many washings.

As mentioned earlier, the slip of nylon and the fluffy yarn texture can make stitches hard to see but this thoughtful design makes it less difficult to work with. I will give tips along the way to make it work for beginners. This is a forgiving pattern and thanks to self striping yarn, you don’t have to be precise!
The starting chain of even number of stitches will be the width of your wrap. Mine is about 9-10’ long and very generous. It may be too much for smaller statures but I am 5’11 and most wraps and shawls feel skimpy and won’t keep me warm when being cozy at home on the sofa.

Make the pumpkin wrap
You will need:
Two colors of the yarn cakes. If you’re making an average-sized wrap (6’ or so) two skeins may be enough. I used three total for a larger wrap- two cakes of pink melon (color 1) and one cake of coconut cream (color 2).
Below is a visual chart of how to mix the two colors to get the same result.
Materials to crochet a blanket wrap
- 8.5 mm (size M) crochet hook : The crochet hook I like for this project this large hook keeps the wrap very soft and flexible.
- tapestry needle
- tape measure to customize your length
This is a 2 row repeat, starting and ending with color 1.
Stitches: sc- single crochet, dc- double crochet – wdc – wrapped double crochet
Use this color chart as guide if you want to replicate the look of my wrap using the coconut creme and peach colors.
Shown 5’11 model with 10’ length wrap
Starting chain for length you’d like:
5′ – ch 114
6′- ch 136
7′- ch 160
8′ – ch 184
9′- ch 206
10′ – ch 230
Use color 1 for your base chain.
Continue with color 1.
Row 1: DC in the second chain from hook then every stitch until you reach the end. Ch 2 and turn.
Row 2: DC in the first stitch. Skip next stitch then do a wdc, wrapped double crochet in next stitch – a wrapped dc creates two stitches. (see video below if you aren’t familiar with this stitch). Skip next stitch then repeat the wrapped double crochet continuing this until the last two stitches remain. Do a double crochet in the last stitch. Ch 2 turn.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 until you reach the width you’d like, ending with a row 1. The wrap shown is 22″ wide, 10′ long.
Now, without cutting your yarn, work a border using your favorite border technique or use mine:
Chain 2. Working in the round dc around all edges. You may stop here and tie off your work. If you want a ribbed border , slip stitch and chain 2. Continuing to work in the round, alternate dc and fpdc (front post double crochet) stitches one or two rounds.
Cut ends and weave in any loose ends. Enjoy your cozy wrap!
