Light Crochet Shoulder Shrug



A light crochet shoulder shrug is a great accessory in warmer months. Add to a dress for an easy transition into night. The shrug from Bernat Yarns is crocheted in a silky bamboo yarn, so it's soft and comfortable to wear.  The openness of the shrug also makes this cute accessory very lightweight, so it's the perfect way to cover your shoulders if you're wearing a summer dress or tank top.

Light Crochet Shoulder Shrug


  • 4 balls Bernat Bamboo yarn in Corn
  • 8 mm (U.S. L or 11) crochet hook, or size needed to obtain gauge


Gauge: 10 dc and 5 rows = 4 ins 10 cm.

Same question what size is this?

will certainly try


I've finished the first six steps and fastened off. Now, the sleeve directions seem to be a bit too scant. Can you please expand. Thank you (I love the pattern and I believe my sister will--if we can figure out the sleeve step.)

I've been crocheting for a long time, but have recently begun reading patterns, and this will be my first piece of clothing. I'm confused on what the pattern is telling me to do at the end of Round 2. Can you help me a little more on this?
