Bohemian Temperature Wrap March & April Update

I have had a wonderful time with my Trinity Mandalas project in the past few weeks, but this took so much of my time that I did not have an opportunity to share my progress of my Bohemian Temperature wrap with you. I have been working on it in the background, and an update on my progress is way overdue.

March & April update

I can be insanely short about March, because March was déjà vu of February. Same colors, mostly green and a bit of yellow and blue.

But then came April!! How exciting to see the development in my wrap with the introduction of not one, but two new colors. April was warm, with temperatures over 26C/80F, which meant a nice deep pink found its way into my wrap. But also orange, yellow and green were well represented. And insanely enough, we also had very low temperatures of 8C/47F, which meant a blue stripe. This is exactly why I love temperature projects so much, the colors are just all over the place!

With all this temperature madness in April, I have now used 7 of the 8 colors I plan to use in my wrap. Only the warmest color, a deep purple for temperatures above 30C/86F is still waiting patiently in my project bag.  I think it will be at least July before we get to those high temperatures, but then again, stranger things have happened in my temperature projects….

I keep the last yarn color attached to my wrap when I finish a stripe, just in case I need the same color for the next day. I keep my working loop safe with a pretty, hand-made, vintage stitch marker I got from a friend. You can really see that the beads used for these markers have been around for a while. These stitch markers are made by One Skein of Love and are available on Etsy.

I have a two of these stitch markers, so pretty. Here they are nicely side by side on my hand made leather pouch by Major Leather, in which I keep some of my crochet bits and bobs.


Make your own Bohemian Temperature Wrap

To make a Bohemian Temperature Wrap, you need 8 colors of Scheepjes Cotton 8. The colors I have chosen make a classic rainbow from cool to warm colors.

It’s impossible to predict how much yarn you will need for the wrap because the color placement is still unknown. In my announcement post I make an estimate regarding yarn amounts. Scheepjes Cotton 8 yarn is available from Wool Warehouse (UK/Int), Knotty House (US), Love Crochet (US), Caro’s Atelier (NL) and many other Scheepjes Stockists. Deramores (UK) have made a starter pack available which includes all the colors.

Pattern

The pattern for the wrap is a triangular shape worked in linen stitch, starting from one corner and gradually increasing along the diagonal. January 1st has only one stitch, and December 31st has around 170 stitches. All details regarding the stitch pattern, gauge and stitch counts is in the written pattern available in English and Dutch.
