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.
What you will need:
BLO-back loop only
sl st-slip stitch
|Back of shrug|
Row 1: 1 dc in 3rd ch from hook and each ch across. Ch 2, turn. (48 dc)
Row 2-54: Working in the BLO 1 Dc in each st across. Ch 2, turn. (48 dc)
Do not fasten off.
Fold the sides together, ch 1, sl-st evenly across 15 rows. (This will be the inside of the shrug)
Join yarn in on other end of the shrug, ch 1, sl-st evenly across 15 rows.
Fasten off, weave in ends, and turn piece right side out.
