Simple Crochet Shrug

Lion Brand« Homespun® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

6 1/2 sc = 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

NOTES:

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



 

SHRUG
Ch 69.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across - 68 sts at the end of this row.
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.

FINISHING
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 Shannon Kmatz on 2013-12-06 *****
I started crocheting a month ago and consider myself a beginner. I made this shrug over the course of 2 evenings. I was intimidated to try an easy level 2 pattern, but it was EASY!!! It turned out beautiful and fits perfectly! It is also very warm!!
