Hi everybody! Brenna from BrennaAnnHandmade here! 😀
For my last lightweight, free summer pattern of the year, I thought I’d share this super easy + fun shrug pattern with you all! Are you ready to get started? Great, let’s go!
*Fits Size: Teen’s / Women’s Small – Medium
1. To make the shrug wider, add or decrease starting chain (112) in increments of 4 per inch.
2. To make the shrug longer, crochet 2 rows per inch.
10 balls of La Mia pastel 100% cotton yarn in White (you may need additional skeins if planning to increase the size of the pattern)
Kartopu 6mm crochet hook
Large Eye Tapestry Needle (for sewing top & weaving in ends)
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
Row 1: Put 2 dc in the 4th ch from hook. *skip 1 ch, put 2 dc in the next stitch. Repeat from * across, then put 1 dc in the last stitch at the end of the row.
Row 2: Ch 2, turn work. Put 2 dc inside the 1st “V” made from the set of 2 dc of the previous row below. Repeat across the entire row, by putting 2 dc in each “V” from the previous row. Put 1 dc in the last stitch at the end of the row.
Rows 3-61 : Repeat row 2.
*The finished rectangle will measure approximately 30″ wide by 33.5″ long
Cut yarn, leaving an extra long tail to sew up top.
Finishing: (creating the arm holes) Using the long tails of yarn threaded through the tapestry needle, fold the rectangle in half width-wise & sew one side together starting from the bottom (the open ends), up to 5″ from closing (this is the first armhole. Repeat on the other side.
Weave in all ends. All finished! 🙂
