Free Crochet Pattern: Simple Sassy ShrugBy Rachel Choi – 32 Comments
|With beginner crocheters in mind, here is a shrug that is simple yet sassy. If you can crochet a rectangle then you can easily crochet this. The basic idea is to first crochet a rectangle and then sew up the two ends to form the sleeves. It is just as simple as that! Anyone can fit into this shrug since it can be easily adjusted. Just follow the instructions within the pattern to adjust the sleeves and the length as needed.
Finished Size: 30” (76 cm) width from end of arm to arm, 10” (25.5 cm) tall from neck to bottom
Crochet Pattern: Shrug
Start by chaining 28 or a chain that fits around the largest part of your arm
Row 1: ch 2, dc in third ch from hook and in each ch across: 28 dc
Row 2 – 42: ch 2, turn, dc in each dc across: 28 dc
Note: If the shrug is not the width that you desire (from the end of one sleeve to the other), continue to repeat the last row in the pattern.
To create sleeves, fold your work in half such that each row is folded in half. Starting at one end, sew piece together until you have sewed the length of 12 rows. Sew together the same length on the other side for the second sleeve. If you chose to alter the size of this shrug you may also want to alter the length of each sleeve.
