Valentine Shrug

This heavy shrug with lovely texture has multiple options, so it’s a perfect fit for everyone! Make it with sleeves or without, with the collar or without! So many options in just one pattern! And since the key measurement is from elbow to elbow, one size fits ALL – up to 5X!!! Also, if you don’t really want to use #6 bulky yarn, instructions are given to make it with ANY yarn! Talk about versatility!

You can find the pattern on both Ravelry and Etsy!

Yarn:

You will need a 10mm hook, and 600-920 yards of #6 bulky yarn. I used Hometown USA by Lion Brand and it came out beautifully to show off the stitches! BUT, if you’d rather use another yarn, instructions are also given to make it with ANY weight yarn!

Inspiration:

This shrug is all about where texture meets wearable fashion! The star stitch is so interesting and the texture adds warmth! I thought the star stitch, on its side, looks a lot like an embroidered heart, and I just couldn’t resist making this for Valentine’s Day!

Construction:

This bolero is one size fits all because the key measurement is from elbow to elbow. You start by making a rectangle, and seam the corners to form the arm holes. Next you have the options of adding sleeves (from elbow to wrist) and a collar! 

You will need a basic understanding of the usual crochet stitches, slip stitch, single crochet, and half double crochet. Special instruction is also given for the star stitches and working in the third loop of the half double crochet.

Supplies:

Super Bulky (#6) yarn: I used Hometown USA by Lion Brand in Cincinnati Red (600-920 yards)

10mm hook

Finished measurements: One Size fits all – up to 5X (60”)!!!

Gauge: 8 sts is 4” wide; 4 rows in pattern is 3.25”

You can find the pattern on both Ravelry and Etsy!
