Sidewalk Shrug Crochet Pattern

October 15, 2020

The Sidewalk Shrug Crochet Pattern is a beginner friendly, lightweight shrug that is perfect for warm fall afternoons. I used DK weight yarn with a filet stitch. This shrug is light and airy enough that it could even be worn in the summer!

Materials
DK weight cotton yarn (I used Uru Yarn Cotton Basic in Pavement) – 2 skeins for S, 3 skeins for M/L, 4 skeins for XL/2X/3X
4.5 mm hook
yarn needle
scissors

Level
easy

Pattern notes & stitches to know
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
sc blo – single crochet back loop only
dc – double crochet

· ch 1 does not count as sc

· ch 3 counts as dc

· ch 4 counts as dc + ch 1

· This shrug is made as a rectangle and then folded and sewn to make a shrug.

· Gauge: 16 dc x 8 rows = 4” x 4”

Sizes:
S, M, L, XL, 2X, 3X – The pattern is written in these sizes consecutively. Example, when the pattern gives the ch amount (135, 143, 151, 159, 167, 175) the 135 is for S, 143 is M, 151 is L, 159 is XL, 167 is 2X, 175 is 3X.

This shrug is loose fitting with positive ease.

Repeat rows 2 & 3 until you work all the way across with 135, 143, 151, 159, 167, 175 rows.

Fasten off. Leave a long end for sewing.

SEWING

Lay the rectangle so there is ribbing along the top and bottom. Fold the top down, lining up both ends of the ribbing. Sew the sides closed where the ribbing meets with a whip stitch. I used the long ends for sewing. Leave the top open for the sleeves.

After it’s sewn, pull the top and bottom so the arm seams are running horizontal through the middle. This is how you wear the piece, you can see that it’s looking more sweater-like! 🙂

And you’re done! I hope you love this cute shrug!
