As the summer progresses, evenings get cooler, while the days are still hot. A shrug is a great way to cover your shoulders, while still wearing low-cut summer tops. Aside from the practicality, they are a great fashion accessory in their own right. The Bestie shrug is a wallet-friendly (1 skein!!) project that’s easily made and is fabulous to wear. You can go absolutely bonkers with the colors and play around with the edging to achieve nearly limitless variety to suit your look and your mood. A link to the free pattern is at the end of the post.
I’m an accomplished craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews on the topic of crocheting and other crafts. In my everyday work, I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new.
I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to making our crochet society bigger and more popular.
I’m interested in crafts and interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.
