Hello December! I am tempting to make a red sweater for this Christmas but this easy and quick picot chain lace crochet shrug is in the way again maybe because they are so fast to whip up that why I finished them all in one go!
Have you ever feel like you want to do something but then you finished something else? For me this happen all the time.

This lace easy shrug is made from picot chain crochet stitch which I made this tutorial earlier.
The shrug is so simple made from 1 rectangle and sew the each end to create the arm hole that it! all done, see how easy they are? I make them with cotton yarn also but you guys could switch to acrylic yarn or wool if you like to make it more warmer. as for me the weather here in Thailand is suit my choice for cotton yarn.

Let’s get into the pattern.
The chain will be multiple of 5+2 for the foundation.

Repeat row 2 and 3 until you get to 20 inches long.
After we got one piece of rectangle , now it’s time to assembly.
Lay the piece of rectangle in flatted and fold each corner inward until they meet then using your yarn needle to seam the corner with your prefer method ( I used whip stitch) and leaving holes for the arm. For the arm holes I leave my one about 5 inch or your prefer length.
Repeat for the other side.
