Today I am sharing another free tutorial for a crochet Shrug…..The Monet Shrug
Inspiration & Design
This post may contain affiliate links, view my disclosure policy for details.
This design was first featured in Inside Crochet Magazine issue 117. My inspiration for this first came with weddings in mind, either for the bride to wear as pop of colour to match the bridal bouquet or bridesmaids to have a lightweight shrug to keep them cosy yet still elegant.
A light cover up shrug which is perfect for those chilly summer evenings. Alternatively wear it draped around your neck as a pretty slouchy scarf.
Where will you wear yours? to a picnic? wedding? garden party? why not add some stunning sophisticated diamonds to your outfit with this elegant light weight summer shrug.
You can purchase the yarn from LoveCrafts here.
For this pattern I used –
3 x The Yarn Collective, Rivoli Sport, (35% wool, 35% alpaca, 30% mulberry silk, 100g/250m/273yd, Shade – Johannes Sage 507, alternatively you could use any sport weight yarn, there are plenty of sport weight yarns to choose from on the LoveCrafts website.
Sport weight lies somewhere between 4 ply and DK.
