This design takes elements from filet crochet to create a representation of a keyboard and mouse. Inspired by the very keyboard I type on, the QWERTY Wrap is wide enough to be worn round your shoulders as a shawl at you desk but still slim enough to wear as a scarf on your commute!

I have worked in offices for years and always found myself shivering in the summer when the air con is too high or in getting cold in the winter because the heating hasn’t kicked in. My mission for the QWERTY Wrap is to make sure that you keep warm AND make your colleagues jealous with this unique and versatile accessory.
The PDF pattern is written in US terms and includes full written instructions, a chart and a picture guide for the cabled edging.
Skill Level & Special Stitches
I have classed this wrap as advanced beginner / intermediate because although it uses simple stitches (dc and sc), the design is derived from fillet crochet and has multiple colour changes and a cable technique for the boarder.
Descriptions of the Foundation Single Crochet (US Terms)is given in the pattern along with a modification for those who prefer to work directly into a foundation chain has the beginning of a project instead.
Yarn: Any DK yarn can be used, approximately 150g (540yds) in one colour and 50g (180yds) in the second colour.
For the pattern in the pictures I used 1 skein (50g 180yds) of Rico Baby Classic DK in shade 31 (Light Grey – 1 skein) and 3 skeins (150g, 540yds) in shade 32 (Dark Grey)
Yarn needle & scissors
The wrap is one size measuring 68in x10in 170cm x 25cm
