It just might work...

...but then again, it might not. I wanted to crochet a lacy swimsuit wrap, but couldn't find a pattern that I thought might work. What I really liked was the Salsa Scarf from the Anna Kosturova collection. I didn't want to spend forever crocheting such a seasonal item, so I needed to find something at a larger gauge.

What I found that might work was a shoulder shawl pattern from Moda Dea. It's the Crochet Scallop Wrap by Gayle Bunn (LM0258)-- available in the free patterns section (www.modadea.com).

My version will need to be lengthened, but I think I can handle that. I'll also be adding a narrow waistband, and a little extra width on either side edge. I had some ribbon-y yarn in the stash -- OnLine Linie 15 "Orlando" that seems to be working up OK --

The photo shows only about 9 rows, so time will tell - fingers crossed!

Neat idea! I love the original skirt and will be interested to see how this comes out. The scallop/shell in the pattern you've chosen is really pretty.
