Here another one of my favorite Easy crochet cocoon shrug or acardigan which is all you need to know is double crochet stitch which is very basic skill for beginner.
If you girl can do double crochet stitch then you can make this pretty simple cocoon shrug cardigan easy peasy like a piece of cake.
The all dc cocoon cardigan is super easy to adjust the size to be bigger or smaller by and more chain to the foundation chains.
And the instruction is made from just one rectangle.
I used worst weigh, yarn weight 4 medium. , The one That I would recommend is from Lion brand feel like butta yarn, arcylic mixed ,They have a great varities at a good price!!! I Love them ^^. Or you could go for cotton blend for comfy texture .
I am using about 800-1200 yard all together.
