Helllllooooo warmer weather! I can’t tell you how happy I am to finally be able to leave the house (and by leave the house, I mean step outside) with short sleeves and no jacket. I was starting to worry winter would last forever!
Even though we’re definitely seeing some sunshiney days here in the midwest, we still have a bit to go before summer. Honestly, these are my favorite kind of days. Nice and warm in the afternoon with a little bit of chill in the evenings. Perfect weather to sit outside on the porch and look at the stars or social distance chat with the neighbors.
The Hayden Wrap was designed to be a simple shawl to wear all spring. This easy to make pattern is super beginner friendly. The only stitches you need to know are chains, single crochets, and double crochets. It doesn’t get much easier than that! Keep scrolling down for the free pattern.

For this project I used Scheepjes Whirl in Caramel Core Blimey. It’s a great neutral that has a pretty gradient from tan, to cream, to a rich caramel color. It will match so many things in my wardrobe! Honestly, this might be one of my favorite yarn cakes ever! You can find these cakes at LoveCrafts in a variety of colors. There is even a rainbow cake!
