Ticking Wrap


This wrap continues my current obsession with linen stitch. I love it the fact that you can create all sorts of colourful patterns without stranding yarn. It also doesn’t look too crocheted which is generally a good thing.

This, like so many things I make started out as something else, I was going to make a large triangular wrap but as I went on it became obvious that there was going to be just too much of it so I changed tack. There is a point at one end and not at the other, a sort of trapezium, but I think the asymmetry works well, making it a versatile wear, particularly when you add some tassels. Feel free to make it bigger or smaller.

You will need:
4mm hook

Plump Superchunky and Plump DK are made from the highest quality superfine merino and baby alpaca.  These really are special and luxurious fibres and should be treated carefully!  Having said that both yarns are suitable for delicate hand washing.  Use a specialist detergent and do not agitate or twist the fibres to retain the gorgeous softness and shape of your garment.

Because of the roving nature of our yarns (they are single ply, rather than tightly twisted), some shedding may occur.  The best way to deal with this is spray your finished garment with water and leave to dry flat, naturally before the first wearing.  This sets the fibres and should stop any problems.  If you want any further advice just drop us a line at

Using your yarn
All our yarn comes in skeins.  Before using you need to wind the skein into a ball or you will get into an awful tangled mess!  If you are not sure how to do this you can watch our video here!
