Called Cranberry Sauce Shrug because its color resembles cranberry sauce. But the style does not appeal to me. Too short at the back and you have to secure the front part all the time.

Where is the image???

Hi indigomoonarts, The image is showing above, right below and to the right of the project name and byline. Julia, AFC editor

Oh how I love the full range of sizes provided in the pattern! That is a rare find. The only downside is you won't really know how much yarn you will need at the start of the project to be prepared and buy all of it at once. But for me, it's a small price to pay to get that plus size pattern adjustment. I love both the cranberry and the gray suggestion. It looks really easy to make in reading over the pattern. I am saving this one for me!

Hi Princess, Thanks for pointing out this omission - I've updated the pattern above to include the amount of yarn needed for each size you'd like to make. Thank you! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

how much yarn does this take??

I'm sure the reason why there's no yarn usage listed because the pattern can fit a variety of sizes.
