6 Crochet Simple Shrug Patterns
Shrugs are among one of the easiest patterns for clothing to make, especially if you are someone who is just starting with crochet, or making wearables that aren’t a hat or scarf. I love them and have a few that I wear, as well as one of these that I’m working on myself.
Most shrug patterns are as simple as working up a square or rectangle to the size needed to fit you and seam arm-holes together to form the shrug, from there you can add the collar and sleeves. Not all patterns call for sleeves its more of a preference thing whether or not you choose to add them, I have on some but not all depends on personal preference.
Crochet Collared Cocoon Shrug Pattern
This Crochet Collared Cocoon Shrug Pattern made in a super bulky weight yarn is worked up using the V-stitch. The V-stitch is one of my favourites to use in a project, so easy to do but gives the pattern a lovely textured look. This Collared Shrug comes in quite a few size options from extra small to 5x and is very easy to adjust if you wanted to make it larger or smaller where it’s just a simple square and you add the cuffs and collar after you have seamed the armholes.

Crochet Colossal Shrug Pattern
I love the look of this Crochet Colossal Shrug Pattern. the stitch gives the shrugs a very appealing texture. I love the oversized cozy drape look of this Colossal Shrug. The pattern is written for one size fits most. If you wanted it to work up a little smaller I would suggest a smaller weight yarn and a smaller hook, if you can figure out the repeat and adjust your changing.
