Seaside Cover Up Pattern

Updated: Jun 19


Light and floaty, the Seaside Cover Up is the perfect accompaniment for any beach outfit. Made for a length where you can paddle in the sea without getting it wet but it is easy to add extra length for a more dramatic look too. Worked in one piece in a Granny rectangle, with granny stripes added to the front panel to even the bottom edge.

Try Cover up on and make sure you are happy with where the rectangle stops on the arms. If you want additional coverage, continue working in pattern around to make a larger Granny rectangle, fasten off when desired arm coverage has been reached. Please note that you may need extra yarn if opting to add extra rounds at this stage.


Once desired arm coverage has been reached, fasten off.


At this point, count 6 clusters from front st markers, place marker. Repeat for other side. This is where you will place the Back ties that will secure the cover up in place and stop it from slipping off your shoulder. You can use the st markers to pin it in place and make sure you are happy with the placement. If you feel that you need to move it a couple of sts forward to back depending on the fit on your body, please do so before sewing in place and weaving in tails.


You will now add extra Length to the front so it matches the back.


Reattach yarn in middle (2nd) ch of corner st

Row 1 (RS): Ch 3, 2 dc, *ch 1, 3 dc in ch 1 sp, repeat from * across to corner st, ch 1 2 dc in ch 3 sp, dc in 2nd ch of corner ch sp, turn.

Row 2 (WS): Ch 4, *3 dc in ch 1 sp, ch1, repeat from * across, ch 1, skip 2 dc, dc in 3rd starting ch, turn.

Rows 3 - 9: Repeat Rows 1 and 2

You can try on the Cover up and see if you would like to add any additional length. Bear in mind that after this point, the front will become longer than the back so however many Rows you would like to add to the Front, you will need to reattach the yarn, repeat Rows 1 and 2 until you have reached the desired length on the back as well.

Fasten off, weave in ends.

Finishing

After any additional length is added, you can sc in each st around perimeter of rectangle. Fasten off, weave in ends.

Block Seaside Cover. Depending on any amendments you may have made to get the perfect fit for you, you may not have the same amount of rounds/rows specified so you will just want to lay it flat and block it to open up the granny stitch pattern.
