Crochet Piano Wrap

Lion Brand« Chenille Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

Collar 8 sts + 6.5 rows = 4" (10 cm) in sc. Body 1 shell + sc repeat = 2.5" (6.25 cm) and one row = 1" (2.5 cm) in shell pattern. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

shell (dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc) in same st. inc Shell (double shell) [dc, (ch 1, dc) 5 times] in same st. Changing yarn Work sc (or sc tbl) by inserting hook under loops (or back loop) of next sc, yo, draw loop through, drop yarn to WS, pick up next yarn from underneath, yo with new yarn and complete sc.


COLOR SEQUENCE
Piano Keys Pattern
BB, AA, BB, AA, BB, AAAA, BB, AA, BB, AAAA (a set of three black and a set of two black separated by double white keys= one octave= 24 rows)

NOTES:

The Wrap features a turned back Collar in the pattern of a piano keyboard. The Body is worked in a shell pattern, shaped at the center back into a shallow V. This shaping helps the Wrap stay on and drape.


COLLAR


Note: The piano key Collar is made first, like a scarf from end to end. It depicts four octaves, worked in sc tbl with specific color changes. You will need two working yarns in A and one in B. The B keys are 8 stitches long and 2 rows wide. 8 stitches of the Collar are worked in striping pattern, but at every row you’ll change to the second ball of A for the remaining 4 stitches. So B is carried up one side of the Collar at the same time the second white is carried up the middle on the wrong side of the work. After dropping, keep the A strand of the middle color change to the wrong side of work. This technique means you end up with no cut yarn and very few loose ends to deal with. With A, ch 13.
Row 1 (RS): Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Turn – 12 sc made.
Row 2: Ch 1, sc through both loops of first sc, sc tbl next 10 sc, sc through both loops of last sc. (Maintain sc both loops at ends, sc tbl center 10 sc for entire Collar). Turn.
Rows 3-4: Work Row 2 two more times, dropping A and changing to B in the last sc. Turn. Begin working the key pattern
Row 5 (RS): With B, ch 1, sc in first sc, sc tbl of next 7 sc, drop B and pick up second ball of A. Sc tbl of next 3 sc, sc in last sc. Turn.
Row 6: Ch 1, sc in first sc, sc tbl of next 3 sc, drop A and pick up B. Bring dropped A strand to front of work (WS). With B, sc tbl of next 7 sc, sc in last sc, drop B and pick up A – one Black key made. Turn.
Row 7: With A, ch 1, sc in first sc, sc tbl in next 7 sc, drop A and pick up second ball of A. Sc tbl of next 3 sc, sc in last sc. Turn.
Row 8: Ch 1, sc first sc, sc tbl of next 3 sc, drop second A and change to first A. Bring dropped strand to front of work. Sc tbl in next 7 sc, sc last sc, drop A and pick up B – one White key made. Turn.
Rows 9-16: Work Rows 5-8 twice more – 2 more Black keys made. At end of last repeat do not change to B. Wrap working A strand underneath the unused B strand to carry. Turn. Make another White key
Rows 17-18 Continuing with A work Rows 7-8. There are now 3 Black keys and a double White key. Rows 19-28 Work Rows 9-18 – 1 octave complete.
Repeat Rows 5-28 for 3 times more, for 4 complete octaves ending with a double white key, fasten off – 100 rows made.


BODY


Note: Body of Wrap is in yarn C, worked onto the long A and B striped edge of Collar. For center back shaping, work a double shell (inc shell) every third row. For clarity, mark the center stitch and move marker up each row.
Row 1 (RS): Join C with slip st in the side of beginning sc of Collar. Ch 1, sc in same st. Make 1 sc in the side of each sc row along Collar, working under 2 strands of Collar sc AND the 1 carried strand – 100 sc made. Turn. Set up pattern
Row 2: Ch 1, sc in first sc, skip 2 sc, shell in next sc, skip 2 sc, [sc in next sc, skip 2 sc, shell in next sc, skip 2 sc] 6 times. [sc2tog, skip 2 sc, shell, skip 2 sc] twice. Sc2tog, [skip 2 sc, shell, skip 2 sc, sc in next sc] 7 times to end – 16 shells made. Mark the sc between the 8th and 9th shells for center. Turn. Begin pattern.
Row 3: (inc) Ch 4, dc in first sc, skip dc, sc in next dc. [Shell in next sc, skip dc, sc in next dc] across to marked center sc. Inc shell in center sc. Skip dc, sc in next dc. Repeat between [ ] to end, except in last sc work [dc, ch 1 dc]. Turn.
Row 4: Ch 1, sc in first dc, [shell in next sc, skip dc, sc in next dc] across to center. Shell in ch1-space at center of inc shell. Skip next dc, [sc in next dc, shell in next sc, skip next dc] across. Sc in 3rd ch of turning chain. Turn.
Row 5: Ch 4, dc in first sc, [skip dc, sc in next dc, shell in next sc] across, except in last sc work [dc, ch 1, dc]. Turn.
Row 6: (inc) Ch 1, sc in first dc, [shell in next sc, skip dc, sc in next dc] across to center. Inc shell in center sc. Skip dc, sc in next dc. Repeat between [ ] to end, placing last sc in 3rd ch of turning chain. Turn.
Row 7: Ch 4, dc in first sc, [skip dc, sc in next dc, shell in next sc] across, placing shell in ch1-space at center. In last sc work [dc, ch 1, dc]. Turn.
Row 8: Ch 1, sc in first dc, [shell in next sc, skip dc, sc in next dc] across, placing last sc in 3rd ch of turning chain. Turn. Working in pattern as established, inc every 3rd row 4 more times:
Rows 9-18: Work Rows 3-8, then Rows 3-6 once more.
Row 19: Slip st in first sc, dc and ch1-space. Ch 1, [sc in next dc, shell in next sc, skip dc] across, placing shell in ch1-space at center. At end, sc in next dc, leaving last ch1, dc and sc unworked. Fasten off.


FINISHING


Fold Collar with right side facing out. Sc around entire edge of Body, joining Collar to Body at each end as follows: Holding Collar and Body together, join C in the side of C sc from Row 1 of Body. Ch 1, sc in same place. Sc, working under 2 loops of Collar and 2 strands of Body, through both thicknesses, making 1 sc in each sc of Collar while making 2 sc in side of each dc, 1 sc in side of each sc of Body. Sc 15 along short end of Body. Rotate and sc across long edge, placing sc in each dc, ch1-space and sc. Rotate and sc 15 along other short end of Body. Hold Collar and Body together, sc to join as with other side, working under spare loop of Collar base ch and 2 strands of Body. Place last sc in C sc from Row 1 of Body. Fasten off. Weave in ends. Wrap does not require blocking, but gently finger press and ease into shape and to measurements. Sometimes simply trying it on and wearing will bring the Wrap into shape.

Crochet Piano Wrap Reviewed by D P on 2011-04-05 *****
I made the piano "collar" into a scarf. When I made 4 octaves, I single crocheted in cream yarn all around the whole scarf. I love it!
