Isn’t my friend, Linda, lovely in this easy to make crochet shrug? Wearing shrugs is a perfect way to bring your summer dresses and shirts into fall and early winter.

You can actually make make one of these without knowing a stitch of crochet.

How, you ask?

Well, my tutorial for this incredibly easy shrug can be found here on my most recent eHow publication.

If you remember from one of my previous posts, the Editor-in-Chief of eHow, Jerri Farris, approached me a few months ago asking if I’d like a job as one of their sewing experts for the new crafts channel they are launching. Well, I’m pretty sure you know what I said….OF COURSE, I WOULD LOVE TO!!! 🙂

The shrug tutorial is the second project I’ve had published over there and I would be eternally grateful if you would head over to eHow, check out the tutorial, and leave a comment.

I was so grateful for all of your encouraging comments you left on my first project, so this time I’d like to give a little something back to you for taking the time to leave a comment. Those of you who leave a comment on my eHow post will be entered into a drawing to win this cute autumn crochet shrug.

    I knew that was my friend Linda’s hair….so cute! Love that shrug on her. And yes, a great way to bring those summer clothes into fall. Especially our last fall. What a beautiful October we had.

    Such a cute shrug. I love wearing these when it is too cool for short sleeves, but not yet cold enough for a jacket.

  4. Ingenious Beth! I love these little shrugs. A long-sleeved one would be perfect as I only have short-sleeved ones. I just don’t know if I’ll be able to find one of these fancy curtains. If I do, I’ll be going right back to your tutorial. Thanks Beth!

    When I first saw this, I thought it involved intense crocheting! Silly me–you always have fun, cute projects that are easy and quick to complete! Thanks!

    I’m curious to know how the shrug feels under the arms as it looks like a very close fit – doesn’t appear to have any ease.

    • Hi Gail,
      Linda wore it all day and loved it. In the picture of the back it looks to have more ease. You might want to leave more room on your shrug. Let me know if you have any more questions.
      Have a wonderful Sunday!
