Crochet Modern Granny Shrug

This fall, I’ve been starting to see the granny shrug popping up on the crochet boards, so decided I needed to make one for myself.  It looks like a big granny square, and I found a great “recipe” at Mariavalles Handmade that I used to put mine together.  It’s quite a cozy sweater and an easy project to accomplish.

I decided that I did not want the typical granny square and wanted something a bit different for mine.  I found this cool Granny Pillow on Yarnspirations and decided that it was the fun look I was going for in my granny shrug.  And I just knew the Caron Cakes would be perfect for this project.  This granny would also be a fun way to play with your own colors ideas if you would rather go that route.

This is basically a one size fits most pattern, but if you need to go up size, just make your square bigger.  The model is small but I’m pretty average, and it fits us both.
