Pattern Description:

This is an intermediate level pattern, it uses a number of techniques including post stitches and Bavarian crochet. There is some simple shaping within the pattern.

This is a loose fitting textured shrug that will fit a wide range of sizes. It is comfortable but stylish and suitable for women of all ages and sizes.

The shrug is easily modified if you don't fit easily into the size ranges given above and instructions are given within the pattern to enable you to adjust the fit so that it is comfortable for you.
It has been made in one piece and can be left with shorter sleeves and no edging if that is your preference.


14 stitches and 6 rows = 4 inches in Double crochet (US terms)

  • MATERIALS To complete the shrug you will need yarn in 3 colours. I used Sean Sheep Rockbank, 70% wool, 30% soy. Emotive Yarns Taradale would give the same result. Otherwise any DK/8ply/light worsted weight yarn would work. Preferably with a similar composition. 500mts/550yds Colour1. (cream) 450mts/500yds Colour2. (self striping) 325mts/375mts Colour3. (beige) Or a total of 1275mts/1425yds - 2000mts/2200yds if you want to use a single colour.

Suggested yarn:

1425 yards of Worsted weight
