This is what you’ll need:
- DK, light worsted yarn
- Crochet hook 5mm and 6mm
- Yarn needle
- 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
