This ladylike crochet shrug is made with sportweight yarn. Lightweight and airy, a cute outfit for Spring and Summer time. I made the sample with elbow-length sleeves but you can always adjust the length as you wish.

Materials: ( I used )
3,5 mm crochet hook
Sport weight yarn: white (about 250 gr for the sample – size L/ 100 gr or 382 yds per skein)
If you don’t crochet, you can buy this shrug on my Etsy Shop
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 the 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 the same stitch or space.
This crochet lacy love shrug pattern fits sizes L and XL ( chest size: 36 to 42 inches )
Skill level: Intermediate
Gauge: 10 double crochet stitches x 4 rows approximately 2 inches ( with materials indicated )
(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.

R7: same as R3

Repeat from R6 to R9 until you reach your desired length for the sleeves. Sc across as border at the last round.
Insert hook and join yarn at 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, and adjust as you try it 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 the ring) x 2 times, fasten off the ring. Use color A yarn to wrap around the middle.
Attach to the middle line on the back.

This is just beautiful! Thank you for stopping by Snickerdoodle Sunday! Come again next week.
You create so many beautiful patterns Maz! I don’t know how you do it but appreciate your sharing with us! This lacy love shrug is totally lovely!
I love this shrug! It is beautiful and perfect to wear over a dress or tunic. Thank you for sharing!
Stopping by from the Snickerdoodle Sunday party 🙂
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?
No you don’t have to say sorry. Thanks again <3
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.
Thank you Jenn,
I have fixed it 🙂
Thanks for sharing. I found you on Hookin On Hump Day. This shrug is gorgeous! I love it. I wish my skills were that good!
