That’s a Wrap Shirt

Looking for that staple piece you’ll grab again and again? Get started on your own wrap shirt! This reversible shirt is a breeze to create. Made in one main piece without any seaming, two sets of ties are crocheted along with the edging resulting in a timeless project that’s perfect for a variety of seasons. To style it, simply place the shirt over your head and tie the smaller straps around the back, and the thicker straps around the front.
