Basic Skills Necessary:

  • dc ch/dc chain = foundationless double crochet (I have a tutorial on my blog for this stitch at http:/ /lazytcrochet.blogspot.com/2010/03/foundationless-crochet.html)

Pattern Description:

This Crochet Circle Shrug or Vest is a sleeveless design with a circular collar all the way around. You can use a button, or a shawl pin closure if desired.
Skill: Intermediate, with additional instructions provided on my blog.
Worked with worsted weight yarn. Sizes for Small/Medium and Large/X-Large, with additional instructions to increase for Plus Size. Bust measurement varies, depending on if or where you choose to button it.
(Approximately 32 - 36 for small/medium and 38 - 42 for large/x-large with additional inches for the plus size addition.)
It is not form-fitting, but more of a loose style to button or let loose. It is not a tight fit around the arm hole openings and is meant to be a more open and comfortable style.

Instructions are in English, using U.S. crochet terms. I do not have Spanish translation available.
