Arizona Sunset Shrug

This Arizona Sunset Shrug has the look of a poncho without all the bulkiness. You'll be glad you made this crochet shrug pattern on cooler days. It will keep you at a comfortable temperature without being too hot. This crochet shawl pattern is stylish, too. You'll definitely get attention when you wear it out. Choose a beautiful color palette that will stripe nicely. This crochet shrug is lush and plush.

Easy

Crochet HookJ/10 or 6 mm hook

Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

MATERIALS:
Lion Brand Landscapes: Tropics - 6 balls
Lion Brand Crochet Hook - Size J-10 (6 mm)
Lion Brand Split Ring Stitch Markers
Lion Brand Large-Eye Blunt Needles (Set of 6) 

GAUGE:

11 sts + 7 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. 
 

STITCH EXPLANATION:

BPDC (back post double crochet) Yo, insert hook from back to front then to back, going around post of indicated st, draw up a loop, (yo and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice. Skip st in front of the BPDC.
FPDC (front post double crochet) Yo, insert hook from front to back then to front, going around post of indicated st, draw up a loop, (yo and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice. Skip st behind the FPDC.

By the way, this is easy to resize to fit your specific measurements. I am becoming used to making my sweaters and things like that according to my exact measurements, and you should be, too! It will open up a whole new world for you. Plus, your confidence will bloom. LOVE the COLORS!

So I am not a huge fan of shrugs but this beautiful design is about to change all that! I love the overall pattern, the colors shown are just lovely and it looks so comfy and the perfect thing to wear when there is just a slight chill in the air. Fall is upon us here in South Africa and the evening are definitely a bit cooler and I am going to love wearing this as the weather slowly cools.

This looks like a nice quick project to make on the weekend. I am assuming it is a one size fits most pattern. It looks easy enough to adjust for larger sizing. My mother-in-law loves these shrugs. Her shoulders get cold. These make her comfortable without making her feel too warm.

The "Arizona Sunset Shrug" is so, so beautiful! I can't get over how simple this is to make. The front post and back post double crochets are what give it the faux rib knit look. That's a crochet cheat when you don't know how or are not so good at knitting. Love that!

Love your free crochet patterns and I really like this shrug pattern. It is very well written and does look easy enough to make. I love the colors used. They do look like the colors of an Arizona sunset. I'm putting this on my to do list for when I get time to make something for myself.

This shrug pattern is now on my list of to-dos! It would be an awesome wardrobe staple to own. It could be thrown over tank tops and t-shirts to keep warm or to add a bit more before going out on dates or to the movies. I would make one in a neutral colour, so it would go with almost anything, and I would make one in something bright or flashy to pair with neutrals.

I really like this Arizona Sunset Shrug pattern. It is well written and sounds easy enough to make. I'm thinking of adding a collar to mine to help keep the neck warm as well. I just love the colors used in this one. I think this could be made to fit arm length by measuring your arms, that way it goes to the wrist. I'm putting this on my to do list for this winter.. Thank you so much for this free crochet pattern.

Color imitates the hot Arizona sun. Fantastic. I will pin this shrug. Thanks for the pattern which is just in front of the page.

WHAT SIZE IS THIS? AND WHAT SIZE IS THE NEXT SIZE UP IN THE PATTERN?

I CAN'T TELL WHAT THE SIZE IS, AND WHAT IS THE NEXT SIZE UP? LOOKS CUTE PLEASE RESPOND.
