    Too cute, I made a similar shrug using the Happy Hookers pattern book

  2. That shrug is a fantastic way to wear crochet! It looks pretty and perfectly snuggly. (Great outfit, too!)

      Thanks so much @Kathleen! I had never worn a shrug before crocheting this one and now I love them!

    Nice shrug, especially as the first you ever made!

    I have never made a shrug too, is it difficult? I’m a bit nervous to make crochet clothes..

      @Saskia … It’s actually super simple. It’s basically a long rectangle that’s just folded over and stitched together to make the arms and then the bottom part is added on. I’ll try to find a simple pattern to shoot over to you.

      Thanks @Debi … This project will give me an excuse to show off the too-many shoes in my closet!
