This southwestern-inspired shrug uses very simple stitches to achieve a unique end result. While this design resembles the look of tapestry crochet, it’s actually made by switching colors mid-row using basic crochet techniques.The result is quite a showstopper and looks far from DIY-ed.

The video tutorial will walk you through tips for how to switch colors without cutting your yarn so that you have fewer ends to weave in. Win! (Video available 6.29.17)

Paired with jeans, leggings or cutoffs, this’ll become your favorite comfy statement piece. If you’re looking for a mindless project with a bit of magic tossed in the middle, this crochet shrug pattern is for you!

Made with deliciously soft and easy wearing Jeans yarn from Lion Brand.
