Why Bulky Yarn?

Using bulky yarn to make a crochet shrug is a great way to create a cozy and warm layer that’s perfect for chilly days.

The thickness of the yarn means that you can create a beautiful and textured fabric with just a few simple stitches, and the added weight of the yarn gives the finished piece a lovely drape.

For The Rosie Shrug pattern, I recommend using a bulky weight yarn in a soft and squishy fiber like a blended wool and acrylic yarn.

The bulkiness of the yarn also means that you can work up this pattern quickly, making it a perfect project for last-minute gifts or cozy nights in.

So if you’re looking for a fun and fast crochet project that will keep you warm and stylish, try making this Shrug with bulky yarn!

And the finishing touches….

If you wish to make this Shrug longer please add pattern rows and measure your length.

Lay Shrug flat with RS facing, fold Shrug in half on the long side and sew  5” from out in on each side to form the sleeves. Fasten your yarn, cut, and weave in on each side


Start at one side near the sleeve, attach the yarn, and use Shell st to give the Shrug a nice collar edge. 


Sew in all ends, and trim excess.

So how to wear it?

Congratulations 😘on finishing your beautiful crochet Rosie Shrug!

With its cozy texture and versatile style, this piece is sure to become a staple in your wardrobe. 

There are many ways to wear a shrug, depending on the occasion and your personal style.

Try pairing it with a simple tank top and jeans for a casual look, or layer it over a dress for a more formal outfit.

You can also experiment with different ways to tie or fasten the shrug, such as with a belt or a brooch.

And don’t be afraid to play with color – using a bold or contrasting shade of yarn can really make your shrug pop.

Remember, the best way to wear your Shrug is with confidence and a smile. So enjoy your new piece and happy crocheting!
