I have a question about the pattern. I made this just as it says but there is not 91 stitches in that second row. when done as instructed it comes out to about 14 inches wide. i gave it to my young granddaughter divide 93 by 2 and you get 46 and a half stitches. which is about 12 to 14 inches wide...if I am wrong then could someone please explain. thank you. its a great pattern, just not the size it is said to be..thats why the 3 rating

Hi zorba, sorry for the confusion! It seems as though the 91 stitches counts both the dc stitches and ch stitches from row 1. So in row 2, you will dc in the ch 1 spaces from row 1 and ch over the dc stitches from row 1. I hope this helps! - Laura, editor of AllFreeCrochet

When ever I see projects that are geared towards summer I grab them. I live in florida so what others wear only in summer I can wear year around. This is an example of one. Plus it's very easy and I love bamboo yarn. It washes beautifully and is very soft.

I have made a few of these and am actually wearing one now. It is very easy to make, and quick too. For anyone having difficulty with where to seam the sleeves - fold the piece in half lengthwise and stitch the edges together, beginning from the edge and working toward the center until you reach the desired sleeve length.

I'm not sure how to sew it together. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance for any help.

Also, would there be a video showing how to put it together?

I don't use facebook, but thank you

Anyone have a suggestion for other yarn choices that are similar to the bamboo? Without changing the size of the completed piece... Now, the color looks yellow, but a muted yellow. I never thought a shrug like this one would be so easy to make. It is simply a big rectangle with the ends sewn together for a small section that creates the sleeves. Easy-peasy!

Shrugs are becoming my favorite thing to crochet and I am constantly looking for a new pattern. They are so easy and the differences between shrugs come in with what technique the designer selected to use. I love the oven weave shrugs because they can be worn through most seasons.

Let's see. The designer has provided three lines of directions and once completed to the desired length, you to can have this beautiful sun goddess shrug. While you are at the store picking up the yarn to create this, get enough for two. You know you want to.

This shrug definitely has wow factor to it! It's sooo feminine! It's so gorgeous that I'm amazed it can be designated "easy". I'm a little disappointed that it seems to be only written for one size and unfortunately it's not mine. I wonder if there is anyone on here who would be so kind as to help me understand how to increase its size? Or is this a one size fits all pattern?

The sun goddess shrug is a very cute and simple-looking shrug. Looks like the perfect accessory to carry around with you in your purse. If you are like me and get cold in restaurants or in some stores while shopping and carry a heavier sweater just in case, this might make a good substitute.

While this cute pattern is suggested for warm weather, I might also suggest that it could be worn in the evening, when it gets a little cooler. It's lightweight, so you feel warm but not excessively. As it's lacy and lightweight, it could also be rolled or folded up and put into your purse or bag for later use. I know I wouldn't want to have to go home to pick up a sweater if I were cold. It would be much more convenient to bring it with me!

I have made a few of these. Super easy pattern and Bernat Bamboo is soft and feels great to wear. I only wish they would come out with more color options.
