If you’re looking for feminine crochet garment for spring & summer to keep your shoulders warm, Nalu Crochet Shrug is everything you’ve been wishing for!

This shrug is basically made from just one rectangle and then seamed to create the armhole openings.

Although this pattern is one size, you are easily able to customize all measurements of this crochet shrug.

It has a beautiful lacy stitch pattern and works up very quickly. This is a great pattern for an experienced beginner who is ready to give lace crocheting a try.

The pattern uses US crochet terminology and contains full written instruction, progress pictures and charts.
