I'm heading to Hilton Head next month with hubby and I need a wrap/cover-up to wear over my bathing suit on the beach and from the hotel room to the pool/hot tub.  I'm just not one to show a lot of skin to anyone and!!!

I had bought an 805 yd cone of cotton yarn from Hobby Lobby (Sugar 'n Cream) a couple months ago and thought this yellow would be perfect for summertime.  It was originally $13.99. But, who's goes to Hobby Lobby without their smart phone and 40% off digital coupon? So, this wrap is going to cost about $8.39 plus tax, which is really cheap for a cute, versatile and comfortable summer item to add to my wardrobe.

Here's a pic collage of my progress, thus far.  I still have about 8-10 inches more I want to add in length.  Once I get this completed, I will add more photos and the FREE pattern for you to make your own.

Happy Crocheting....
