Basic Skills Necessary:

  • single crochet
  • double crochet

  • chain stitch

Pattern Description:

This is my best-selling pattern on Etsy and Ravelry.

The Crochet X-Stitch Shrug is an easy, cute and trendy, one-size-fits-all shrug that goes great with any casual outfit. This shrug would be perfect for fall and looks good over long or short sleeves. Great for chilly offices and folds up nicely into a backpack or carry-on for traveling. Looks good on all body types and sizes!

I have always loved crochet and knitting patterns that look complicated but are secretly easy to construct and lend themselves to be customized to how I want it. The "shrug" construction fits this description because just by altering the size and the stitch pattern I can make shrugs that look very different from each other without too much math!

SMALL PRINT: This pattern may be used to make items for your own personal use, for gifts, or for charitable donations. You may make copies for your own personal use. You may not distribute it in any hard copy or electronic format. You may sell the finished item as long as you credit, "Deanna Young, The Yarn Yogi" as designer.
