  • Instructions:

    Notes: First you will measure the width of your back from one side to the next (under the left arm to under the right arm). Then measure the height of your back from the end of your neck to wherever you want the shrug to stop. My shrug comes to the bottom of my back- before adding on the ruffled collar.

    The shrug is simply made as a rectangle then turned to add on the sleeves to the rectangle. The pattern is how you make the rectangle. Then when finished, you will attach the short ends together for sleeves.

    After the sleeves are finished, then you will begin to work around the opening only to create the ruffled collar.

    To begin:

    Foundation row: Cast on amount of stitches needed to achieve your measurements in width (from one side of your back to the other, under left arm to right arm).

    Row 1-10: TC entire rows.

    Mesh Pattern:

    To begin mesh pattern we will work in multiples of 5. Once you get towards the end of the row, if you are uneven, dont worry about it, you can work in a multiple of 3 or 4 at the end of the row or work whatever is needed to finish the row.

    Row 11: Chain 5 stitches, insert hook into the 3rd stitch and TC into that stitch and continue to connect every 3rd stitch until you reach the end of the row (as shown in the above photo). Turn work when you are at the end of the row.

  • Row 12-16: *Chain 5 stitches, then TC in the middle space of the chain space.* Continue to do this for the entire row (as the photo above shows).

    Row 17: TC 3x into each chain space (as the photo above shows)Row 18-21 TC every stitch.

    Row 22: Chain 5 stitches, insert hook into the 3rd stitch and TC into that stitch and continue to connect every 3rd stitch until you reach the end of the row (as shown in the above photo). Turn work when you are at the end of the row.

    Row 23-27: *Chain 5 stitches, then TC in the middle space of the chain space.* Continue to do this for the entire row (as the photo above shows).

    Row 28: TC 3x into each chain space (as the photo above shows)Row 29-33 TC every stitch. Fasten off; cut yarn.

    Creating the sleeves:

    Measure from top of the shoulder to wherever you want your sleeves to stop. My sleeves go to my elbow.

    On the short sides of the rectangle, you will work along the end and start to TC the entire row.

    For the rest of the sleeve you can either TC entire sleeve and then fasten off or you can work the same pattern from the body piece.

    If working body pattern on the sleeve, just reference the above mesh pattern. When you have reached the end of your sleeve. Fasten off and then do the same on the other short side of the rectangle for the other sleeve.

    Now fold the rectangle in half. Line up your sleeves and turn entire piece inside out. Crochet, sew or mattress seam your sleeves together. Weave in the ends.

  • The Collar:

    The collar is worked in TC all around the opening of the shrug in a circular motion until your collar measures as big as you want it. By triple crocheting each row, you will achieve a cool semi-ruffled effect by the time you are finished. I made my collar about 5 rows wide.

    ROW 1: Begin by TC 3 times in same stitch in the crease where you seamed your sleeve. Then TC into each stitch around the shrugs opening until you reach the crease of the other sleeve.

    TC 3 times into the same stitch in the crease on this side, then continue to TC around until you reach back to your first TC stitch in the opposite crease.

    All ROWS afterwards: TC into each stitch, when your collar measures as big as you would like it to be, fasten off, weave in ends and then work on your edging.

    Edging:

    I finished my edging by SC into every stitch around the collar with a multi-colored yarn. I also did the same thing to the edging of my sleeves but you can finish your edging however you like. Since my collar was ruffled, I wanted a simple edging.

    Your shrug is finished. This is a shrug/bolero in the sense that you can flip it upside down to wear as you like. When my shrug is upside down, the collar around my neck is larger, so I pin it. When its normal, I just wear it open.
