Crochet this super comfy and stylish oversized cardigan shrug! It will fit a range of sizes and features shorter-length sleeves and an open front. This crochet cocoon shrug looks equally great with a sundress or with your favorite jeans. The pattern is available for instant download and includes written instructions, abbreviation keys, and tips to help you successfully create this project.

A very unusual puff stitches pattern is combined with a sensational easy-to-crochet cocoon shape. I’ve included 6 sizes to fit medium to three X. This cocoon shrug turned out to be very light, I used a little more than 4 skeins of super fine (4ply) wool\acrylic yarn for it (3.5oz/100g per skein). I feel very comfortable in it and I know I look really fashionable.

I have written this pattern in standard US terms. The pattern is not for beginners but even if you don’t have enough experience you can try it out anyway. Pictures are included every step of the way, making it great for those who are new to following patterns.
