We are 5 months into the year now, and my temperature wrap is now large enough to qualify as a wrap and not just a triangle. It is still more a wrapette (I think I just made up that word), than a wrap, but still, you can start to see what it is going to be. Time for a small update!

May started out rather cool with temperatures below average. This meant more green, actually a lot more green, found its way into my wrap. The green stands in serious contrast to the orange and pink we had just more than a week before.
But towards the end of May, temperatures found their way up again, giving me a few wonderful evenings in the sun. The orange temperatures were a welcome end of the month for me. I am a sun lover, no, actually that is not true. I love the warm weather, but I do not love the sun. My skin doesn’t do well in the sun, because I burn really easy, so I tend to keep to the shade.
The wrap is now just large enough to just cover the shoulders of my dress doll. From the front she is still a bit bare, but that should become less and less of an issue as the year progresses.
I have peeped at the temperatures for June, and I am all excited to see that the last color is going to find itself entering my wrap, but more on that next time.
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.
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.
