Simple Crochet Shrug

Lion Brand® Homespun®


8 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Large hook is used to create an open fabric that will easily stretch to fit a range of sizes.

Ch 85.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across – 84 sts.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, working in back loops only, sc in each st across.
Repeat Row 2 until piece measures about 38 in. (96.5 cm) from beginning.

Fold piece in half to measure 21 x 38 in. (53.5 x 96.5 cm).
Place markers on each of the 21 in. (53.5 cm) sides, 7 in. (18 cm) below fold for armholes. Seam sides from markers down to lower edge.
Weave in ends.

Simple Crochet Shrug Reviewed by on 2015-11-03 *****
I made this pattern two years ago as a Christmas gift for a friend. It was done in a soft yarn, burgundy red in color. When the gift was opened it was much appreciated, so it seemed. It looked so lovely and cozy as the color matched the flowers in her draperies and complimented her white hair. Unexpectedly, my friend passed away this past April. Her children knew that we had taken care of her for many years as they all lived out of state. When they asked me if there was anything I would like that belonged to her, I immediately thought of the shrug. They searched high and low and never found it. The moral of the story : be honest as to whether you really like something that is handmade. Life is precious and can change in an instant!
