Briallen Crochet Summer Wrap
Briallen is a crochet summer wrap, designed with longer, warmer, and brighter days. in mind. But, even though the Briallen is a lace crochet shawl, made with beautiful, textured crochet stitches and light weight yarn, it can actually be worn all year around as a beautiful accessory. Imagine it gently wrapped around your shoulders in your romantic evening walk or during a date night at home!
You can wear it in many different ways: just let it fall over your shoulders and arms loosely, or drape it over your shoulders and use the belt to chinch it at the waist or, my favorite, wear it as an one shoulder top cover.
Briallen is a name of Welsh origin meaning primrose. It seemed a perfect name for this gentle, but at the same time intricate crochet wrap. I love flowers, because each one has its own personality, it has a meaning and it symbolizes something. Not to mention how beautiful they are.
Primrose stands for youth and renewal as it is the first flower to bloom in spring. They are the symbols of love and honesty. They are also connected to fairies in some cultures.
This crochet summer wrap is one of those projects that, when you wear it, makes you feel special, happy and empowered.
I don’t know if this works for you, but for me, when I finish a piece like this is, and try it on… it’s like when you hear a good song, the one that makes you move, giving you a burst of positive energy and simply makes you feel good about yourself, strong and confident. It makes you wanna dance!
