Crochet Cozy Ruffle Shrug
Hook up my Cozy Ruffle Shrug and keep yourself fashionably warm!
I originally designed this Cozy Ruffle Shrug for a coworker of mine for a gift. She had seen me wear cardigan after cardigan that I made, and mentioned that she really liked them, and wished that she could wear something like it. When I asked her why she couldn’t, she said that she could never wear anything like it as she was so petite. She said that she would look like a child in dress-up play with everything looking too big on her. That planted the thought in me that I wanted to make her something that she could wear, something that she would like and would look good on her. Over the next couple of weeks, I took mental notes about what she liked based on the comments she would make about different cardigans I wore.
- She liked ruffles, but not too many and not too big.
- She liked her sweaters to not be longer than her waist.
- She didn’t like her sleeves too long.
- She liked a shorter front than back.
- She liked rounded vs square.
- She liked blues and greens.
With her likes floating around in my head, I sat down to create her very own “custom” shrug, and the Cozy Ruffle Shrug is the result.
After I finished making it in the XS she needed, I did the math so you can make it for any size from XS to 5X. I used Caron Big Cakes in Shadowberry. I really like the feel of this yarn, and with the different colourways available, it’s easy to find one you like. Each one I try becomes my new favourite combination 🙂
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it — and as much as my coworker did receiving it! Until you see me next time here on The Crochet Crowd, you can find me on Ravelry as The Crochet Ninja.
