Granny Cocoon Shrug

A simple and stylish long shrug , the Basic Granny Cocoon is an easy and highly customizable crochet project for advanced beginners making their first garment and experienced crocheters alike. 

NOTES

The shrug is constructed from a large granny square worked in the round, with added rounds for collar and cuffs. Instructions are also given for optional long sleeves. Note that the finished shrug is a long cocoon shape, meaning that it is tunic length, and is wider in the middle and narrower at the hips, with most of the volume at the back of the garment.

*This pattern is an updated version of my previously published "recipe", which you can find here.
