The weather here can't decide what it wants to be when it grows up. One day it's hot out, the next it's cold. Fall is definitely upon us; has been for some time now, at least here in the Midwest.

I found a great looking shrug on the Lion Brand website that I wanted to try. I am about 95% done with it. I am adding some extra rows to each side so that the sleeves will be a little longer.

It is a super easy project though, and I feel that a beginner could even handle this. If you can make a single crochet stitch, you can do this! It is a longer project because you're basically making a large rectangle.

Here is the link to the pattern I used: Simple Shrug. Lion Brand's site has the same pattern under a couple of headings, made out of different types and colors of yarn, but the pattern is basically the same.

I used two colors for mine, alternating every 13 rows until it was the right size.

It's coming out beautifully. I am hoping to finish it soon, so I can start wearing it! Pictures will be posted as soon as I have the finished product.
