Crochet Shrug Pattern:
I have a new pattern out! This pattern, called “Puff Shrug” was originally published in Crochetscene 2015, by Interweave Crochet. The pattern is now available as a digital download from Interweave at this link. The yarn is Cascade Heritage Paints #9883 Wild Roses (the main color) and Cascade Heritage #5616 Fuschia (the edging color).
The sample shrug was made with just 1 skein of each color. The instructions are written to fit someone with a size 34″ bust, but also give suggestions of how to adjust the size to fit larger or smaller folks. Those adjustments are really very easy. If you go much larger, you may need a second skein of the main color. I doubt anyone will need more than that. Made with a size F/5 (3.75 mm) hook, or size needed to achieve gauge.

I loved how this shrug turned out! The fabric is made all in puff stitches, so it is super easy to make — just a rectangle sewn a bit to make sleeves. The fabric is also smooshy and soft. The lace edging is lovely and feminine. I was so enamored with the finished sample! I wish it would fit me. I will probably give it to one of my girls. They’ll grow into it.
