Simple Shrug

3K Shares

This is what you’ll need:

  • DK, light worsted yarn
  • Crochet hook 5mm and 6mm
  • Yarn needle

Stitch abbreviations:

  • ch = chain
  • st = stitch/stitches
  • hdc = half double crochet
  • dc = double crochet

Note: Use your 6mm hook for every foundation ch

 Create a piece with all dc in the preferred size. The width should be a bit bigger than the length. This is what I did to reach a piece of 95cm x 85cm / 37,5inch x 33,5inch:

Ch125+3, 1dc in 4th ch from hook, 1dc in each ch throughout. Ch3 and turn.

1dc in the next 125st. ch3 and turn. I repeated this 72 times.Sleeves:

ch28, 1dc in 4th ch form hook, 1dc in each ch throughout. Ch3 and turn.

1dc in each st to end. Ch3 and turn. I repeated this 18 times.Next step:

Fold shrug in half and sew the sides leaving an opening for the sleeves. Fold sleeves in half, sew the ends together and attach to shrug.Flip shrug inside out.Collar: The collar is worked in rounds, so do not close the rows.

1: Attach yarn with a sc on 1 of the left seam of the shrugsc all around

2: 1sc in the next 2st, hdc around the top half of the shrug and finish at the same spot on the other side, sc around the bottom half

3 – 4: Start and end both rows with 2 less hdc on both sides (sc instead  of hdc). Every hdc is worked in the third loop (camel stitch) and sc around the bottom half of the shrug

5: Only crochet the top half of the shrug with hdc in the third loop and again start and end with 2 less hdc on both sides

    Love this! What size is it? I’d love to make one for a Christmas but am not sure how to determine sizing.

      Hey Jenn, I measured myself from elbow to elbow and from neck to right under my butt.
      I hope this helps!

    Can this be converted into plus size?

      Hey! Yes defintely. What I did is, I measured myself from elbow to elbow and from neck to (just under) butt. You could do that and add a few inches, depending on your size.
      I hope this helps!
