Poudreuse Crochet Wrap Pattern for Beginner

Poudreuse Wrap Crochet Pattern

Poudreuse means powder snow in French. That’s what this crochet wrap pattern for beginners reminds me of. The yarn is so light and fluffy and the very light blue color is nearly the blue of ice in the mountains.

The Poudreuse Wrap is an easy biased chunky crochet scarf pattern in 2 colors. Only simple stitches are used as well as the bead stitch for some added texture and just a little twist (fully explained in the pattern, don’t worry).

How to Wear the Poudreuse Crochet Wrap

Because of it’s simple, yet elegant design, it’s big comfy size and soft yarn the Poudreuse Wrap can be worn for many occasions:

  • You can wear it at home as a crochet blanket scarf when you snuggle in front of the fireplace or watch a good show (Grey’s Anatomy for me please!).
  • Wear it as a giant scarf on cold winter days.
  • You can wear it on your shoulders, as the elegant crochet wrap it is, over a cute dress to go out. I’m always freezing when I decide to wear a cute dress for date night, no more with my Poudreuse Wrap.
  • You can wear it at work as a cover-up when the aircon is too cold (that’s me every day lately).

I could go on and on but I think you get the idea – you can wear it anytime (ok maybe not if you go sunbathing on the beach).

What will you need?

  • 9 mm / US 13 crochet hook
  • Bulky yarn. 3 skeins (approx. 510m / 560 yards) in the main color and 1.5 skeins (approx. 260m / 285 yards) in the contrasting color. I used Zeeman Julia yarn in light blue (main color) and denim blue (contrasting color). This is a soft yarn with a 20% wool and 80% acrylic blend.
  • Tapestry needle to weave in the ends. I love this set as it has different eye sizes for different yarn thicknesses and it comes in a small tube which is very convenient so I don’t lose them.

Because the yarn I used is not available everywhere, and I know how painful it is to try to find equivalent yarn which will give you the same effect I have selected a few equivalent yarns for you.

Size

The Poudreuse wrap is 2m25 long and 50cm wide. You can easily adjust the width by adding/removing a multiple of 2 stitches to the starting chain. To adjust the length you can just add or remove rows.

Abbreviations

This pattern follows US notations

  • st = stitch
  • sc = single crochet
  • dc = double crochet
  • ch = chain
  • yo = yarn over

Repeat instructions between * * the indicated number of times or until the end of the row.

The turning chain ch1 and ch2 do not count as stitches throughout the pattern. I use a turning ch2 for dc stitches as it gives me a neater edge. When changing color, the turning ch1 or ch2 at the end of the previous row should be done in the new color. For better readability this is not mentioned throughout the pattern.

The gauge is not important for this pattern. In alternating rows of sc and dc stitches 8 rows x 11 stitches is a 10cm by 10cm square (4” by 4” square).

Special stitches and repeated patterns

The bead stitch is similar to a puff stitch but done horizontally. It’s worked up around a dc stitch.

Bead stitch = dc stitch, *yo around the dc stitch post, pull up a loop* repeat 3 times, yo and pull through the next 6 loops on the hook. This leaves 2 loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull through the remaining 2 loops. The bead stitch has the width of 2 stitches.

Blocking

You’re done with the crocheting part. Make sure to weave in all the ends. To make your wrap shine even more, even out your tension and remove any curling, block your project. Because of the 80% acrylic in the yarn, steam blocking will work best.

Don’t skip this step as it can make a huge difference. Read my detailed tutorial on why block, how-to, and all my tips and tricks if you need help.
