Summer Shrug (Free Pattern included)

I found this cute shrug pattern from DROPS websites, I fell in love immediately. Very easy and quick. It took me 10 days, it would take less time if Lukie was less demanding. :P I used Caron Spa, took less than 2.5 skeins for Size S.

Shrug Pattern


Test the gauge, using Hook G and Caron Spa yarn. It works perfectly.

Finish Row 1 to Row 14. First INC at Row7, and the last INC at Row 14. Probably 6 more rows, will reach 8 3/4”. Then I can start the Edge Piece. So far, it goes smoothly. Hopefully, I will have time to finish the Back and start the Edge Piece.


Finish the Back Piece. Take 22 rows for the whole back.

Start the Edge Piece, just finished the Round 1.

It is a little bit confusing about the stitches. It doesn’t explain well. So I did my own thing to match up the stitches. Other than that, the pattern is easy to follow.


Finished Round 3, just start Round 4. Haven’t had a chance to take a pics yet. It looks very pretty even it is not finished.


Still working on the Edging, now just finished 4”, still have 2 more inches to go. There are 18 rows to make up 4” edges.


Finally, finished all the edging. Start working on the chart, now on the Round 3. Time to sleep!! Hopefully, I will be able to finish last 2 rounds tomorrow and finish the shrug. I am very happy with the result so far. Love the yarns!!



Use less than 2.5 skeins of yarns. I will post pics tomorrow.

I love the shrug a lot. Easy pattern, and fast project! Strongly recommended!!!
