Stylish & Simple Shrug Over-sized Cardigan Sweater | Fashion







This shrug pattern is really easy and works up pretty quick. It is stylish and trendy and can be worn with just about any outfit! I love how comfy it is!





I have included a few photos of my model, Moraine wearing the shrug with different outfits to show how versatile it really is. 🤩

You can make this shrug bigger or smaller by working less or more amounts of the starting chain and rows. I used 4 balls of Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn in Tweed and a J/6 mm crochet hook. I am planning on making more using Red Heart With Love yarn and Red Heart With Love Metallic yarn – I made some scarves and slippers using that yarn and I love how it comes out!

If you would like to purchase the PDF version you can go to Etsy or Ravelry. Thank you so much!

Row 2 – 4: ch 2, turn, hdc in same st as ch and in every stitch to end – 121 sts

Row 5: ch 3, turn, dc in same st as ch and in next 6 sts, *ch1, sk next st, dc in next st, ch 1* repeat from* to last 6 sts, dc in last 6 sts – 66 dc & 55 ch 1 sts

Repeat rows 5 – 7 until piece measures about 37″

Work 2 more rows of row 7 – 121 sts

Make sure it fits: Fold shrug in half as shown in the diagram below, pin or clip sides 7 inches below the fold for armholes. Put the shrug on to make sure it fits comfortably; if it is too tight or just doesn’t fall the right way, add more rows until it fits the way you want. Fasten off & weave in yarn.

Assembly: Whipstitch side seam up to 7 inches from the fold on both sides. (See diagram) Weave in yarn.


Sleeves: Right side facing, join yarn to the bottom of armhole and hdc in ea st around marking 1st hdc. Do not sl st to join, continue to hdc in a spiral for 3 rounds, moving marker up as you go. (You can also work sc sts instead of hdc if you want tighter sleeves)

Edging: Right side facing, join yarn to side edge and sc in ea st around marking 1st hdc, as follows: 1 sc in ea hdc row, 2 sc in ea dc row. (You can also work hdc instead of sc to give it a thicker edge) Do not sl st to join, continue to sc in a spiral for 2 more rounds, fasten off and weave in all ends. All finished!
