Even if you're a beginner you can crochet something besides a potholder (not that there is anything wrong with potholders!).

This simple shrug is just a rectangle. Yes - a rectangle! It's a perfect summer accessory to add a little pizzazz to your favorite tank top dress.

It works up very quickly - you may be tempted to make several in different colors so you'll always look very 'put together'!

Super easy, quick pattern - no abbreviations; everything is written out for you. A great project if you're just learning to read crochet patterns.
