Special thanks to WeCrochet for providing the yarn for this pattern!
Here in Florida, I am always in need of an added layer. It may be hot outside, but in most buildings the a/c is blasting! I love to bring a crochet shrug or cardigan to wear over my clothes so I’m not so chilly inside.
The Sunday Brunch crochet shrug is a beautiful add on to any outfit. I love to wear it over a dress or tank top. It is so simple to make, and uses the lovely waffle stitch throughout.
The Sunday Brunch Shrug crochet pattern comes with instructions for 4 sizes, ranging in bust measurements from 28-58″. You will crochet a rectangle and then fold it over and sew the ends together to create the armholes. It is a very easy construction and also easy to adjust to fit.
I used WeCrochet Comfy Fingering (#1) yarn for this crochet shrug. It is 75% Pima cotton, 25% acrylic.
This lightweight yarn is so great for summer makes. It is soft, not heavy, and has a wonderful drape. It can be machine washed and dried, making it a great yarn for garments.
Comfy Fingering comes in 19 beautiful colorways, and 218 yards per skein.
Some yarns that would make great substitutions for this project include:
Hobbii Friends Cotton 8/4 – 100% cotton
Lindy Chain – 70% Linen, 30% Pima cotton
Gloss Fingering – 70% Merino Wool, 30% Silk
