Abbreviations

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each round/ row instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc into 1st stitch for every first dc of each round/ row, so just choose your best technique 🙂

Special stitch used:

3 dc – V stitch: ( 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc ) into same stitch or space.

This crochet lacy love shrug pattern fits size L and XL ( chest size: 36 to 42 inches )

Gauge: 10 double crochet stitches x 4 rows approximately 2 inches ( with materials indicated )

Shrug:

Start with color A yarn, work in rows:

R1: Ch 83, dc into 3rd chain from hook ( the first 2 chain doesn’t count as 1st dc ), dc across, 81 sts, turn.

Repeat from R6 to R9 untill  you reach your desirable length for the sleeves. Crochet last 5 rows with color B yarn, sc across as border at the last round.

how to seam a shrug

Back to the R1, repeat the whole process so you will have the other side. Fold the edges of the rectangle, seam on each side to create sleeves, adjust as you try on.

Body edging: ( work in rounds )

R1: With color B yarn, from right side, hdc around.

R2: dc around ( fasten off, weave in ends )

Little bows: ( make 3 )
With color B yarn, form a magic ring, work all into the ring: (ch 3, dc, tr, dc, ch 3, sl into ring) x 2 times, fasten off the ring. Use color A yarn to wrap around the middle.

    Im sorry to bother you again but shouldnt the end of the 5th say 3dc-v stitch sc in next sp, ch 4, sc in next sp then 3dc, dc in last stitch?

  3. Jenn says:

    The end of line 5 doesnt add up. Am I supposed to put a 3dc-V stitch in the very last space before the dc. Thats the only way it adds up to 8 3dc-V stitches but that makes the bottom uneven.
