Make a fashion accessory, with very little knowledge of crochet.  You can make this  item with just knowing how to chain stitch, and double crochet.  This pattern can be purchased in my Pattern shop, which is aimed at beginner crocheters!  Any color of your choice!  Wrap it around the neck on cold winter days, or wear it loosely around the shoulders as shown in this photo!  Add a ribbon, or a torn strip of fabric, and it's finished!

Shrug, jacket


This shrug/jacket may look complicated to make, but it is actually very easy.  This pattern includes instructions so that you can make it any size.  The process is very simple, and all my patterns are aimed at beginners.  One young lady purchased the pattern, made this shrug for her grandma, and at the time of her emailing me, her grandma had not taken it off since!!  Good to hear!  Make it lots of different colors, and even making it in multicolors will add to it's allure!
