Cl (cluster) Yarn over, insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (2 loops rem on hook), *yarn over, insert hook in same st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook; rep from * 5 more times, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.
Wrap is made from 64 Squares and a Collar.
Squares are worked in 3 rnds. The first rnd is worked with A and remaining 2 rnds are worked with a color from B or C, so that 4 squares are made with each color in B and C.
Collar is worked back and forth in rows.
Squares are arranged into a rectangle and sewn tog for Wrap. Collar is sewn to one long edge of Wrap. Ties are worked onto completed Wrap.
SQUARES (make 64 – 4 each with each color in B and C for Rnds 2 and 3)
With A, ch 5; join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Rnd 1 (RS): Ch 3 (counts as first dc), 3 dc in ring, (ch 2, 4 dc in ring) 3 times, ch 2; join with sl st in top of beg, creating four 4-dc groups and 4 ch-2 sps at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 2: From RS, join a B or C color with sl st in same st as joining, ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in next 3 sts, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next ch-2 sp (first corner made), *dc in next 4 sts, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next ch-2 sp (corner made); rep from * 2 more times; join with sl st in top of beg ch – 32 dc (8 dc across each side) and 4 corner ch-2 sps.
Rnd 3: Ch 2 (counts as first hdc), hdc in next 5 sts, (2 hdc, ch 1, 2 hdc) in next corner ch-2 sp, *hdc in next 8 sts, (2 hdc, ch 1, 2 hdc) in next corner ch-2 sp; rep from * 2 more times, hdc in last 2 sts; join with sl st in top of beg ch – 48 hdc (12 hdc across each side) and 4 corner ch-1 sps.
With A, ch 30.
Row 1: Hdc in 3rd ch from hook (2 skipped ch count as first hdc) and in each ch across – 29 hdc.
Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as first hdc), turn, working in back loops only, hdc in each st across.
Rep Row 2 until piece measures about 40" (101.5 cm) from beg.
Sew Squares into 4 strips of 16 Squares each, arranging the different colored Squares as desired. Sew long edges of strips tog to make Wrap.
Sew one long edge of Collar to one long edge of Wrap.
Ties (make 2)
From RS, holding 2 strands of yarn tog, join A with sl st at right front edge at base of Collar. *Chain for about 25" (63.5 cm). Cut one of the 2 strands, leaving a long tail to weave in later, continue with rem strand only, Cl in 4th ch from hook. Fasten off.
On opposite end of Wrap, count in 4 blocks and join 2 strands of A at base of Collar. Rep from * to work 2nd tie.
Weave in ends.
