I actually made this for my daughter in the early spring. Going off of memory, I think it took only 1 skein of yarn. (98% sure) I love one skein wonders!
|Snug as a bug in her shrug.|
This shrug pattern is written for a child size. The arms are wide because my daughter doesn't like anything to tug on her shirt. The arm width is actually a decent size for an adult. The pattern is very easily converted to any size, just keep crocheting until the piece is the length that you need, to go across the arms and back.
