Crochet Foliage Shrug - pattern release


 

  
This my newest pattern for a shawl turned shrug / bolero.

For this shawl/shrug I used 1.5 skeins of Nako's Vals worsted variegated yarn (100 gr/skein) and a 3.00 mm (UK11) (US 10/3) hook.
Used terms (American terminology): chain (ch), chain space (ch sp), skip (sk), double crochet (dc), treble (tr), picot.
*tapestry needle for weaving ends.

Finished measurements: 95 cm (37.4”) long and 53 cm (20.8”) wide (at the widest point).

Tip: The tutorial shawl /shrug is made as a rectangle that fits sizes S / M. The rectangle is folded at the center in the shape of a triangle and each of the two panels is sewed so as to make it a shrug/bolero. Please consider this if you want to make it more generous in volume (length and width) and not as closely fitting at the arms. The pattern uses additions of 5, so consider this when calculating your foundation stitches if you want to make it bigger in length. I recommend you measure yourself arm to arm across your back (or wrist to wrist to be more precise, and chain as much, but be careful that you have a stitch count of 5 (additions of 5). The pattern for the foundation of this one is made with 130 stitches.

Such captivating photos that look right out of a fashion editorial. The background is amazing.
You have also named the shrug aptly - it does remind me of falling leaves on a warm autumn evening.

Simply gorgeous! I love the autumn shades and the fact that despite being a shrug it looks like a shawl. You're truly talented, Maya!
