What can I tell you about this Cozy Crochet Shrug Pattern?

  1. Looking for a very quick stitch I chose the X treble and it flies!
  2. Color blocking is my favorite ‘ but using some solid is perfect too
  3. Kartupo yarn is so soft you barely feel it on your shoulders, but it has 20% wool which makes it warm and fluffy!

Notes

  • The pattern is worked in rows
  • Ch1 does not count as st at the beginning of each row
  • Ch 4 at the beginning of row counts as a treble stitch
  • You can work this pattern with one color or multiple as you wish- I used two colors
  • This pattern is worked as a rectangle and Joined  to form  the shrug
  • If changing colors make sure to have a changing technique and weave your ends in.
  • You can decide on the width and length of the shrug by adding chains and rows
