Crochet Shrug

I don't consider this a pattern so much as it is simply "instructions" on how to create a basic shrug. You could make this in any size using may different kinds of stitches. I chose to make mine with a v stitch.
 
To make this shrug you simply crochet a rectangular swath. Below you can see a close up of the stitch I chose but that really isn't important. The size of the piece should be determined by who is going to wear it. I just made it to fit my daughter.




Once you have your rectangle you fold it so that the two wide edges touches and sew up a few inches on each end to create sleeves as seen above.

You'll find several variations on this basic idea if you search shrug patterns. I glanced at a few of these but then just decided to make it up as I went. It's a very easy, straight forward but still wearable project.

  3. MAN . . . our shrugs sure are similar :)

    I made a shrug for a friends 3 year old using some left over yarn. Well, or course, I used up every last inch of it before I could sew it together, and had to ship it before i could get buttons, so I wove some ribbon through the "sleeve join" and tied a bow at the wrist . . perfecto.

    Thought I would share that hint with you too :)

    1. oh, a ribbon would be a sweet addition, especially for a little girl's shrug. Thanks for the suggestion.
