Hooked for Life Surge PDF
This pattern is a downloadable PDF file.
A wave-like pattern of staggered shells, combined with a soft wool yarn with a long color repeat and subtle changes from one color to the next, gives you Surge - the colors of the beach rolling one on top of the other. This toasty wrap is crocheted from a centered foundation chain out to each end, and the buttoned, slot-and-tab finish gives you more visual interest at the shoulder. One size fits most, a more custom fit can be achieved by lengthening or shortening the length before the decreases, or changing the location of the buttons to suit your own curves.
