Need a last minute gift for Mother’s day?
This shrug is a fun, easy and quick project. you can definitely finish it by Sunday. Grab your yarn and let’s get started.
Follow the stitch pattern below and make a rectangle. Mine is a size S/M 42 inches long and 18 inches wide. If you need a bigger size increase your fondation chains to increase the length of the rectangle. If you need a longer shrug work more rows.
then fold the rectangle and sew the corner edges together to make the arm openings
Here is the stitch pattern used
for my crochet top I repeated the 6 rows 5 more times.
Yarn used to make this crochet top, crochet shrug:

I used 2 skeins of Katia Jaipur – Color Orange/Pinks/Turquoise and a 3.5 mm hook
row 1: 1 tr in 6th ch from hook, 1 tr in next ch, *ch 2, sk 2 ch, 1 tr in each next 3 ch, repeat from * across, ch 1 turn
row 2: 1 sc in same space, 1 sc in next tr, (ch 4, sk to the middle tr of next group of 3 tr, 1 sc on that tr) twice, *ch 1, sk to the middle tr of next group of 3 tr, (1 tr, ch 1,) 5 times in that tr, ch 1, sk to the middle tr of next group of 3 tr, 1 sc in that tr, (ch 4, sk to middle tr of next group of 3 tr, 1 sc on that tr) 4 times, repeat from* around, end like the beg, with 2 sc one the last tr and 1 on the 5th ch, ch 1 turn
row 3 follow chart
row 4 follow chart, you’ll make a puff st of 3trtog then a ch 3 picot on top, ch 3 bettween puff stitches
row 5: starts with ch 4 and 1 tr in same space, follow chart and note that between the arcs you will work 3trtog. and you will end with, 2tr on 3rd ch
row 6 is the only row of dc instead of tr: start with ch 3, 1 dc in next tr, 1 dc in next ch. In this row it is neater to work inside the ch instead of the loop
