Fletch Wrap Crochet-Along
Welcome to the Fletch Wrap Crochet-Along Main Page! Here you will find all the information you will need to follow along with this CAL.
Do you enjoy crochet a-longs? I know I do! It’s a great way to learn new techniques or stitches at a slow pace and with a community of fellow crocheters who are willing to help each other.
That being said, let me introduce to you the Fletch Wrap, winner of Judges’ Choice in round 12 of Battle of the Stitches, which will be the focus of this next crochet-along!
The Fletch Wrap is worked in rows and features an asymmetrical, rectangular shape. The main stitch featured in the chevron style design is the Starburst Stitch. It’s a beautiful stitch that’s extremely versatile and can be used in a myriad of designs.
To achieve the chevron style look in the main body of the Fletch Wrap, I changed colors every few stitches and followed a pattern throughout. The chevron style also resembles arrows. But, with this Fletch Wrap, the choice to switch colors is yours; you can make this wrap in one single color, or stripes, or even color blocks (wide stripes of a single color). The Fletch Wrap comes in sizes S/M.
The Fletch Wrap is considered an intermediate pattern where you will use a combination of stitches to create the Starburst Stitch; those stitches are the Fan stitch and the Front Post Cluster Stitch. I’ll have photo tutorials. Even though it’s intermediate, it’s only because of the stitches used. If you know how to do a front post stitch, you’ll understand how to do a front post cluster stitch. So, don’t let the experience level deter you from making this wrap.
The Fletch Wrap CAL will be worked over a course of 4 weeks, with each part being released weekly. Always check the main Fletch Wrap CAL page for how to find the different parts, if you need to.
The Fletch Wrap is currently a paid pattern, which you can get for 50% off if you purchase the pattern to work at it at your own pace if you’d like.

Now, seeing that the CAL will start in about one week, I want to give you advance notice of what supplies are used. That way you can get your yarn ahead of time.
