This particular shrug was created in Noro King & assorted yarns using chevron & spirals patterns as the most prominent crochet motifs. I love these little shrugs… they’re loose fitting & lightweight, great for those summer evenings or to jazz up your favourite winter jumper (sweater)… best of all they’re super fun to make… enjoy!!
OK, so I finally found the time to post one of the many new items that I’ve been promising to do… Time just seems to run away from me these days… renovating & establishing a new garden has certainly taken its toll on my crochet work but, never fear, I’ve not abandoned my hook & yarn just yet, but they have been very badly neglected…
So, this little number is one that I finished a while ago & has been sitting (as so many others yet to come) in the ‘To List Box’ – An easy-to-wear purple & multicolor freeform crochet women’s bolero shrug. A gorgeous, fun, OOAK garment for those looking for something truly different.
This is a loose fitting garment Australian size 8 to 10 (US: 4 xsml to 6 sml)
for the purple I used: Bendigo Woollen Mills Rustic 8 Ply
for the motifs I used a collection of assorted natural & synthetic yarns This piece has now sold.
This little number is the easiest garment you’ll ever make – it is worked by size not number of stitches & as with all my recent patterns I like to think that even the most basic beginner will be able to have a go & make something other than a crochet square
The pattern is in both UK & US terminology with stitch drawings & diagrams & because it’s such an easy pattern to read, it will help the beginner gain confidence reading & understanding other patterns – for the more experienced it’s a quick garment to knock over in a few hours
