One size US H-8 (5mm) crochet hook, or size to obtain gauge.

In pattern stitch, 11 pattern repeats = 8"/20.5cm and 6 1/2 rows = 4"/10cm. Note: One pattern repeat consists of one Bullion st (B-st) and one ch-2 sp.
Chain (ch), single crochet (sc), slip stitch (sl st)
B-st: Bullion stitch—[Yarn over] 7 times, insert hook in indicated stitch or space and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through ALL loops on hook (ease through each loop, rather than pulling through all of them at once).
1. Wrap is worked from lower edge upwards.
2. One less bullion stitch is worked in each row, forming the slanting side edges.
If you would like to make a longer wrap, increase the length of the foundation ch in multiples of 3 ch (e.g. 280, 283, 286, 289,...).
Row 1 (RS): B-st in 7th ch from hook, *ch 2, sk next 2 ch, B-st in next ch; repeat from * to last 3 ch, ch 2, sk next 2 ch, sl st in last ch, turn—90 B-sts.
Row 2: Sl st in first ch-sp, ch 2, sk next B-st, *B-st in next ch-sp, ch 2, sk next B-st, B-st in next ch-2 sp; repeat from * to last ch-sp, ch 2, sl st in last ch-sp, turn—89 B-sts.
Repeat last row 41 more times—47 B-sts. Fasten off.
Using yarn needle, weave in ends. Position wrap on shoulders, mark where closures should go. Hand sew closures into place.
