Coziest Shrug

With chillier mornings and evenings, a cozy shrug is in order! Dress it up - comfy for work. Dress it down - great with pajamas for a night in.


3 balls of Lion Brand Homespun yarn in desired color (I used Corinthian)
Crochet Hook Size N 10mm

Note: A large hook is used to create an open fabric that will easily stretch to fit a range of sizes. Your finished product should measure approximately 38 inches by 42 inches. It will be folded in half and seamed on the sides, leaving a 7 inch gap for armholes.

(Pattern adapted from: http://cache.lionbrand.com/printablePatterns/90689B.pdf)
Ch 85
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across – 84 sts.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, hdc in each st across.
Repeat Row 2 until piece measures about 38 inches from the beginning.

Fold piece in half to measure 21 x 38 in. Place markers on each of the 21 in. sides, 7 in. below fold for armholes. Seam sides from markers down to lower edge. Weave in ends.
