Beginner Level Crochet
• Hook size US 9/10 (6mm/7mm)
• Measuring tape & yarn needle for weaving in or sewing ends.
• Bernat Handicrafter cotton yarn: Pale Yellow- 100% cotton 1 huge giant skein or 3 skeins (est. 400 grams) per skein
• 1 multi colored cotton skein for the edging.
Notes: First you will measure the width of your back from one side to the next (under the left arm to under the right arm). Then measure the height of your back from the end of your neck to wherever you want the shrug to stop. My shrug comes to the bottom of my back- before adding on the ruffled collar.
The shrug is simply made as a rectangle then turned to add on the sleeves to the rectangle. The pattern is how you make the rectangle. Then when finished, you will attach the short ends together for sleeves.
After the sleeves are finished, then you will begin to work around the opening only to create the ruffled collar.
