My crochet shrug for springtime! I wanted to choose something that would be light & airy so I went with the ‘v’ stitch as the main look for this shrug. The best part about these shrugs is that they can be adjusted to create them in any size and in any style! If you like my pattern, you can follow down below.
Yarn: medium weight; approx. 250 yds
[Caron Simply Soft in Heather Charcoal]
Hook: Size I / US 9 (5.5 mm)
Gauge: 12 sts & 8 rows = 4 inches dc
width- 20 inches
length- 14 inches
Pattern Notes: This shrug is created by crocheting a square or rectangle shape, folding it in half & seaming up the sides, leaving room for armholes. The width determines where your shrug will fall on your arms & the length determines how long your shrug will be.
Check your gauge.
Measure your needed width. From the back of your arm to the other arm.
Begin w/ slip knot & ch # mult. of 3 +1 [ch 60]
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook & all the way down. ch 1 & turn.
Rows 2-4: sc in ea st. ch 1 & turn.
Begin ‘V-stitch’ pattern:
Row 5: Ch 3 (counts as dc st). sk-1 space, [dc in next st – ch 1 – dc in same st, sk- 2 space] rep to end. place 1 dc in last st. ch 1 & turn.
Rows 6 & 7: sc in ea st. ch 1 & turn.
Rows 8 & 9: dc in ea st. ch 1 & turn.
Rep rounds 3-9 for pattern.
Pattern Notes: The pattern of my shrug may seem random & thats because it is! I get bored doing the same stitch over & over so I went with a quick changing pattern. Be sure to choose a pattern that you are comfortable with. If you do like the look of my pattern this is what I did:
2 rows sc
1 row ‘v-stitch’
2 rows sc
I repeated these 7 rows until I had the necessary length for my shrug.
Keeping yarn attached sc along the edges of your garment. (Optional of course)
Fold you garment in half and seam both sides leaving room for your armholes.
To finish my shrug I edged around the collar with a large scallop and the sleeves with a small scallop pattern.
Large Scallop Edge pattern-
Ch 1, sk- 1, [sc in next st, sk- 3 , 7 trc in same st, sk- 3]
Small Scallop Edge pattern-
Ch 1, [sk-1, sc in next st, sk-1, 5 dc in same st]
Be sure to adjust this pattern based on your materials & measurements! Again you can use any crochet stitch/ pattern you wish to create your desired look. This shrug can also be made to any length or any width you desire.
I can’t wait to wear this lots this spring and in to the summer! I think this shrug is perfect to wear over tanks & dresses. I’m really happy with how this turned out and definitely plan to make more 🙂
