Notes
  • Used DK weight yarn, instead of super bulky weight yarn, and crocheted with 8mm hook, instead of the recommended 15mm. Basically, I used what I had available.
  • I crocheted 14 rounds and added 3 more rows to the back and bottom edges. The shrug sits comfortably on my shoulders and has a more open style to it.
  • All the seams were whip stitched using a tapestry needle and extra yarn.
  • To finish the sleeves, I added a few rounds of single crochet stitch to the cuffs using a 6mm hook. The cuff band is about 2cm wide.
  • I also crocheted a few rows of single crochet stitch to the front pieces and around the neck. This is worked in one long continuous row, from the bottom of one front piece to the other. Then turn work, Ch1 and crochet back to the other end. This was repeated several times until the “border” was about 4cm wide.
  • I worked one row of single crochet stitch to the bottom edge.
