Crocheted Candy Apple Shrug

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

12 single crochet + 8 rows = 4 in. [10 cm]. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

SHRUG
Chain 42.
Row 1 (Right Side): Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across – 41 single crochet. Turn.
Row 2: Chain 1, single crochet through back loop of each single crochet across. Turn. Repeat Row 2 until piece measures 80 in. [203 cm] from beginning. Fasten off.

FINISHING
Fold shrug in half lengthwise. Sew sleeve seams, leaving the center portion of shrug open and adjusting to fit so that shrug fits snugly around shoulder and back. Weave in ends.

Wearing Suggestions:

To wear, slide one of your arms into one of the sleeves, wind the remaining length of the rectangle around your body (thus crossing it), then slide your remaining arm into the remaining sleeve. The winding is done in the same manner as you would wind a long scarf around your neck.

Crocheted Candy Apple Shrug Reviewed by Beth Hamm on 2011-06-23 ****
I used a different yarn and had to adjust my hook size to match gauge (as others have stated). This could easily be made with any number of different yarns.

I have 14 year old twins and a 12 year old and all 3 of them went nuts over this. I guess I'll be making, at least, 2 more of these. Although... my 12 year old LOVES to crochet and she could definitely handle this pattern on her own so maybe I'll have her make her own. As a matter of fact, she's working on one right now for a Barbie doll.
