MATERIALS:

  • Vanna's Glamour Yarn: Platinum - 2 balls
  • Vanna's Glamour Yarn: Purple Topaz - 1 ball
  • Vanna's Glamour Yarn: Topaz - 1 ball
  • Vanna's Glamour Yarn: Moonstone - 1 ball

S/M (L/LX, 2X/3X)
Finished Width From Cuff to Cuff 56 in. (142 cm)
Finished Length at Center Back 15 (18, 22) in. (38 (45.5, 56) cm)

GAUGE:
16 sts + Rows 1-9 = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern st.

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:

Picot Ch 3, sl st in top of last sc made.

NOTES:

1. Shrug is worked in 2 halves from center of back to lower edge of sleeve. Shrug halves are joined at center back, then seamed to make sleeves.
2. When you see "– 12 sts." in the instructions, this lets you know how many sts you will have at the end of that specific row.
3. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st. Fasten off old color.
4. Shrug can be worked following the written instructions below, or by following the Chart. Read Chart from right to left on RS rows and from left to right on WS rows.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I have never really like cardigans or vests because I tend to keep pulling them together. I have yet to try a shrug either in the store or by making one. I love the presentation of this item and even though I am not sure if I will like the fit of it I think this is the one I will make for the coming cooler weather.

I have seen several patterns for shrugs but this is the first one that I think has been a long sleeve version. Now that fall and winter are just around the corner, this lacy picot shrug should be the first thing on your to do list. It is a pretty piece that would be a great addition to any woman's wardrobe.

I need help. Please see my previous comments about the sleeves. Figured I needed to put a star to get noticed.

Hi Linda, Unfortunantly, I'm not the pattern author and neither is AllFreeCrochet - for specific pattern questions I recommend going straight to the source. In this case, that would be LionBrand's customer service. They should be able to help you out. :) Julia, AFC editor

I don't see how the sleeves are going to fit. I'm making S/M size, and the 15" edge, going around my arm is way too big. I'm including pics from another pattern that is similar and I can easily see how those sleeves fit because the finished piece is not a straight edged line, instead it is smaller for the sleeve area. Can you please show me how this pattern works? Do you have any pictures from making it to show the folding and seaming? Or do you have any videos?

I can't understand how to make the sleeves. Fold how, with right sides facing? And seam through both? Also I don't see how the sleeves are going to fit. If I wrap 15 inches for S/M size, around my arm, it's way too big. Can you please share a link with a video how to?

Can't print the pattern.

Hi ekolstein, There's a print button at the top, below the pattern name. You can also always highlight the whole pattern and copy/paste it into Word to print out. Hope that helps! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Julia, please help me. My questions about the sleeves.
