The Uptown Downtown Shrug Pattern is a sleeveless summertime shrug that you can wear two ways. Shaped armholes give a neat fit, while the collar/bottom edge is much fuller on one side than the other. Worn one way, the garment forms a long, slimmer, more casual silhouette. The first option has a sweet small collar with a full, long lower back and front edge. Switch this shrug into a new look by flipping it over and swapping the armholes. Suddenly, this beautiful crochet shrug forms a lovely capelet that keeps your shoulders warm over a bare dress or top. The second options creates a shorter length for a flattering dressy effect. Either way you choose to wear the Uptown Downtown Shrug, this crochet garment can be overlapped in front or pinned in a variety of ways for a closure. You get all of this with one garment.
Uptown Downtown Shrug Pattern is made using a soft worsted-weight yarn in the color of your choice. The lacy look is versatile for elegant or casual attire. Wear this short or long version with jeans and a lightweight shirt for the ultimate casual look. Pairing the shrug with a cocktail dress or elegant skirt adds texture to your overall look. The Uptown Downtown Shrug Pattern includes instructions for sizes from Small to 5X-Large. The comfortable two-style crochet garment will add options to your current wardrobe. Select a yarn color that compliments the items currently in your closet and have fun watching this shrug shrug transform into a finished piece.
