CARRIE BLANKET WRAP | CROCHET PATTERN

Updated: Nov 27, 2023

When "And Just Like That" aired earlier this year, Carrie's blanket wrap quickly became the star of the show for us fiber enthusiasts. Many of us thought to ourselves " I could totally make that" .... and we did.

Carrie's luxurious blanket is knit from 100% cashmere hand dyed yarn and can be yours for the lovely price of $2650. If you'd like to make your own " budget friendly" version of Carrie's blanket wrap, continue reading below.



Materials (Affiliate links indicated with a *):

  • 1061 - 1591 yards Category 6, Super Bulky Yarn (The sizing of this blanket is completely customizable. I used a skein and a half because I wanted the longest part of the blanket to reach from my shoulders to my calves. Im 5'11.)

(I used 1.5 skeins of the Caron Anniversary Cakes Yarn; color: Sweet & Sour Dots ( Edit 27 Nov 23: As of today this yarn is available (on clearance!) via the yarnspiration website: click here . I will update this information as this changes.)


Alternative Yarn Options:

Hobbii Umami

Yarn Bee, Soft & Sleek Super Bulky

Lion Brand, Wool Ease Thick and Quick

We Are Knitters, The Wool

Wool and the Gang, Crazy Sexy Wool


  • 12mm Tunisian crochet hook with cord (use cord that is 22" or longer) (The hook I used was from this set https://amzn.to/3hDEOlh *)

  • tapestry needle

  • scissors


Notes

  • Pattern is written using standard US terms.

  • The pattern uses the the Tunisian knit stitch. Check out this tutorial to learn the basics before you get started.

  • gauge 4"x4" = 10 sts x 7 rows

  • The size of this wrap can be altered by changing the number of increase rows made at the beginning.

Hi Krysten,

Thank you for sharing this lovely pattern. I have my yarn and have started with no problem...but as it has been growing, I have had some difficulty managing the hook with the cord...I have used a Tunisian hook in the past that was 14 inches long, so the cord is new for me...any suggestions or can you point me to a video that can show me how to actually hold my work and how to feed the stitches on from the cord to the shorter hook. I'm feel kind of lost, and thought maybe seeing someone else do something similar might help me find a comfortable way to hold the hook and cable. Any suggestions would be awesom…

Does the 1591 yards include the fridge or just the shawl blanket itself?

I love this but cannot get the yarn anymore. I did find a worsted weight I think I will love just as much. I’m thinking I could just do more increases to get a good size? And up the yardage to about 2,000 yds of worsted weight?

I didn’t properly read the instructions and only bought one Caron Anniversary Cake (Spice Dots). I’m no longer able to get a 2nd one now that I see 1.5 cakes are needed. I’m wondering what modifications are suggested to make this (with fringe) with just one cake.

And if anyone reading this has a Spice Dots Cake they’re willing to sell, please hit me up!

The suggested set does include a US 17/12mm hook. (The hook I used is from that set).


You are able to purchase an individual interchangeable hook on Amazon. (Search for 12mm interchangeable crochet hook; please note that you will have to purchase the cord separately).
