Hi everyone! How’s everything going?
I’m finally starting to settle into my new home with all its new quirks and space. It’s so weird how places give out vibes. Like, I’m still trying to find my new favorite crochet place so I can work on new designs – some places are comfortable with good light and others are warm and close to the coffee. The coffee thing is very much the most important part and I’m such a clumsy doofus that I don’t really want to be carrying the coffee around my house too much. Honestly, I can’t tell you how many times I had spilled coffee on the floor in my previous house. Seriously, it’s kind of embarrassing how often I did it. :’D
Anyway… This week’s new design is one I’ve had on my brain for a while. I honestly love the fan design of the Janice Line and I wanted to make a shrug with it. This design could work as a great big squishy shrug or for the design I have here, which is for a nice bolero that is great for colder evenings. I opted for a bolero design for this because I’m now living in Southern California and a person could wear one of these all the time and it will be very comfortable. Did I mention how much I love the weather out here? It’s fantastic 😀
I really do hope you like this pattern. It’s pretty easy and I’ve included the multiple in the notes so you can make it larger if you’d like. Let me know what you think in the comments!



If you appreciate my weekly patterns I hope you’d consider purchasing an ad-free pdf of this pattern for $1.75 in my Ravelry shop.

Notes

  • This pattern is worked back in forth in rows, with a turn at the end/ beginning of the row, in 2 sections: side 1 and side 2. You will work from the center out on side 1, fasten off, and then from the center out on side 2. Once both sides are completed, you will seam from the edge to the center closed to form the sleeves.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch. The ch-3 does count as a stitch.
  • This design is very easy to customize by making the rows longer (the multiple is 8) or adding rows to make the sleeves longer.
  • You will need to know how to create a slip knot on your hook.
  • The yarn used in this is Lion Brand Yarn’s Cupcake Dk in Forest Path. The example size is small/ medium.
  • The length is measured from 35 to 36 (43 to 44) and the height is measured from row start to end.

– Seaming –

Using your tails, seam the ends of the rows together for about 3.5″ (4.5″) from rows 35/ 36 (43/44) toward the center. This will create the sleeves.
