Easy crochet ribbed shrug free pattern instruction.

Shrug body make 1 piece.

Shrug body make 1 piece. Start making foundation chain for small size chain 120.

Medium chain 130

Large 140

XL 150

2XL 160

After we chain 120 chains you will get around 34 inch long then will will start on row1.

Row1. Make hdc in each chain across until the end of the row. chain 1 and turn.

Row2. Make hdc back loop only in each stitch across until the end of the row. chani 1 and turn

Row3 and more. repeat row 2 until you get the lenght of 22 inches for all size..

Assemble the shrug.

Lay the rectangle in flatted the fold each end until they meet then use yarn needle to sewing to create the armhole.

The armhole will be around 5 inches.

Create the ribbed band for the collar.

Start with chain 18 , you will get around 4 inches of the ribbed band if you want the thicker band add more chain tot he foundation chain for example 20 chain , 30 or more.

After we got a long rectangle that have the lenght that will match the opening of the shrug body.

Row1. make hdc in each chain across until the end of the row. chain1 and turn

Row2. make 1hdc in each stitch back loop only until the end of the row. chain1 and turn

Row3 and more. repeat row 2 until you get the lenght that will match the opeing of the opening of your shrug.

Join the ribbed band and shrug body to create the collar.

Lay the shrug body and the ribbed band then join them together by sc or slip stitch or sewing using yarn needle.

Tidy up the armhole is for the option.

The armhole is good as it is but if you want to tidy up and make them a bit more pretty by make Hdc around the armhole for just 1 or 2 round and that all I did.

Now it’s time to wear them and have fun!

We all done!

Happy crocheting.
