DIY: Free Pattern: The Everyday Crochet Shrug Pattern.

Hello there & Happy Tuesday! I thought as an early Christmas gift to whoever truly would like this pattern I posted last week, I would offer it as free pattern! I absolutely love cardigans and shrugs alike and after trying this lovely technique, spreading the adoration for such a thing should be shared with those who feel the same way! So I hope you enjoy!

Materials
1 1/2 Skeins of Red Heart Soft Yarn in Toast
H/8-5.00MM Crochet hook
Scissors
Yarn needle

Size
Small/Medium

Stitch guide
SC= single crochet
DC= double crochet
SS= slip stitch
YO= yarn over
CH= chain

Note:
*Asterik, Repeat method from asterisk symbol.


CH 110
Row 1: SC the entre Row
Rows 2-27: CH 3 skip 1 ST, into the following ST, (2nd from hook) *DC 2 times into the ST, CH1 and DC 2 times again in the same ST. 


Skip 3 STS and into the 4th ST *Repeat this method (DC 2 times into the ST, CH1 and DC 2 times again into that same ST) until the end of the Row.













You should have created a rectangle.



















Next, you will fold the ends of the rectangle and with your yarn needle, 

with your yarn threaded. Sew the edges together. Just the edges on both sides of the rectangle. This will create your armhole.


For your armhole detailing/finishing:
You will (in between each stitch hole)

Row 1: CH 3
Skip 1 ST hole
YO 2 times into the open ST.
*CH 3
Skip 1 ST hole
YO 2 times into the open ST.
*Repeat this method until the end of the Row.
SS to connect the row. Secure, cut yarn to sew in the edges with the yarn needle

Note: You will do this for both sides of the arm holes.



Note: Once you are complete with detailing both sides.
You will utilize the same technique for the bottom of the shrug, to add a bit of length.

Row 1-2: CH 3
Skip 1 ST hole
YO 2 times into the open ST.
*CH 3

YO 2 times into the open ST.
