Fall Crochet Shrug

This shrug is a crochet project that I recently finished.  I actually started it a year ago and then it quickly became a UFO – or unfinished object.  I am sure if you crochet, knit or sew you know what I am talking about.  For some reason there are just certain projects that you set aside and intend to go back to but that doesn’t happen in a timely manner.  Well, this was one of those.  I am so glad to have finished it and have already been able to wear it once.

The colors of this shrug remind me of Fall.  The yarn I used to crochet this was a cotton yarn from Hobby Lobby called I Love This Cotton.  It is a great cotton yarn to work with and I have used it for a lot of other scarves and shawls that I have crochet or knit.  It also washes well.   I used three coordinating colors – a brown, orange and a maroon.  The maroon is my son’s high school color so the shrug will go with my band Mom shirt.

Shrugs are a great accessory to have, in my opinion.  They stay on better than a shawl or wrap and they keep your shoulders, upper arms and back warm.  I live in a warmer climate so they are perfect to wear in the early spring or fall.  I have also made some bulky weight shrugs that are nice to wear around the house in the winter when you are cold.

I will eventually be writing up a pattern on how to crochet this shrug but I am going to do another test run of crocheting it in a different yarn first.  Currently I am working on a crochet cowl and a knit cowl – I hope to have both of them done in the next couple of weeks.
