The Heart Lines shrug is a practical cocoon cardi which is fun and easy to make using simple stitches and a little colour work (but not so much that the ends will drive you nuts!). Use bright colours as pictured to create a bold look or stick to neutrals or monochrome

Skill Level
This is a great pattern for beginner crocheters as it uses only simple stitches.  There is some colour work but it is a straightforward stitch repeat and easy construction, so it’s a perfect project for stitchflixing!
