Simple Crochet Shrug Reviewed by Karen Crozier on 2011-05-19 *****
I love this pattern and Homespun. I found that it was not too difficult finding the back loop of the single crochet stitch when using the large hook--I sort of let the hook find the stitch. The only thing I changed on the pattern was the first and last stitch of each row--I did a regular single crochet at each end instead of in the back stitch--it gave a nicer edge.

I made it with a g hook and worsted weight 4 yarn for a 3 t size child for Valentine's Day if anyone is interested in this alteration. I used to big white buttons and crocheted button loops for the front. I thought maybe someone could use this alteration for a grandchild.

Made it in nouveau and it is gorgeous. I am going to start another one in Edwardian. Took less than three balls of yarn. Super easy. Love it!

Easy, quick to make and it looks great too.
What more does one want?

Instead of crocheting in the back loops I am using a regular single crochet. This material makes crocheting in the backloops tedious but the end result is beautiful. (and instead of 4 balls I used 5)

I also had trouble getting the hook in the back of the stitches using Homespun. So, I used a double pointed knitting needle to pick up those stitches using a rubber
tip to prevent the stitches from falling off the other end which made them a lot easier to work. JOY BUTLER NJ

Works up so fast, so easy! I needed a warm, dressy cover up for work! I made it with 3 skeins if the home spun, tudor! It is currently a hot, dry summer in Utah so I have to wait until fall to wear it!

I just finished one in bulky weight yarn and have 2 more going. One in Homespun "Wildfire" and one in a navy blue sport weight cotton yarn. This pattern is the greatest. It can be endlessly modified and trimmed to look very different.

I make these 30 inches instead of 38. I also vary the stitch patterns-half double crochet works up fast. I plan on one in laceweight yarn in double crochet to get a real lacey look.

My tips: it will stretch once worn, so it could get too long. That's why mine are 30 inches, instead of 38.
Use a bigger hook to get looser stitches.
Trimming the edges and sleeves controls some of the stretch. You can crochet an edge or rib-knit around the edge (what I plan to do).

This pattern is one I love doing-the results are stunning no matter what yarn I use.

I didn't want this hanging down in the back that far, so I just used 3 balls of Homespun. It's nice and snuggly, and covers the upper half of my arms (I'm 5' 7"). Homespun is my favorite yarn - so beautiful and soft, but its "fuzziness" sometimes makes it a pain to work with - gets caught on the hook!
