Simply Granny Shrug Sweater

The Simple Granny Shrug Sweater by Regina S. Graham is a great throw on over anything and look adorable shrug! L & B used five balls of Noro Taiyo in five different colorways. Noro Taiyo has a beautiful fiber content with unbelievable next to the skin softness. L & B has 12 gorgeous colorways to choose from. You can either mix it up by picking five of your favorite colors or use all the same color and start crocheting a granny square.

This project also makes a great stash buster because any yarn will work, size and gauge are not necessary for this project, you just crochet until you are happy with the size and seam it together. After you have seamed it up just add a collar and cuffs to the arms and BOOM, shrug complete! To take a look at this pattern just click here.
