Simplicity rules. Less is oh so much more.

Since it is uncomplicated, the simple spring shrug is a perfect garment to quickly grab and throw across your shoulders to go out or just to be a bit warmer. Of course, you can also wear one as something for a fancier outing. Regardless of the occasion, one of these simple, quick and easy shoulder wraps will be perfect. Moreover, these are easy and simple projects requiring little in the way of yarn. Therefore, you can make these quickly, using simple resources you are likely to have at home already.

Because the name says it all, there is little to add. Overall, this is a beautiful, simple and very attractive sweater or shoulder wrap.

Although this uses the most basic of techniques, granny crochet, this simple spring shrug is an absolute gem. In particular, I love the use of different colors to offset the homogenous surface, as well as the foldable versatility of this shrug.
