A crochet pattern for a shrug


This is Plaza Shrug, one of my all-time favorite designs! It can be found in Crochet!, Autumn 2016. I love how such a simple design can be so beautiful! Also, I have this thing for lines…I love when there are interesting lines in a design. This pattern, because it uses a mitered square and a striping yarn, has square-shaped stripes on the back, and a diagonal line from one shoulder to the opposite hip that is formed by the increases.

This pattern is available in a digital download of the magazine issue from Annie’s. Get it here with my affiliate link!


It’s easy

Even a beginning crocheter could make this once they have even tension and maybe a little guidance on seaming. You intermediate and advanced crocheters can make this while you binge watch your favorite TV show on Netflix or listen to an audio book.

The yarn used is Plymouth Yarns Gina Chunky #102 Brights. You’ll need 3 or 4 skeins, depending on the size you make. It uses a 10 mm hook (my 10 mm hook is an N, but sometimes they are called a P hook). Because of the chunky yarn and large hook, this pattern will work up pretty quickly, which we all love, of course!
