Looking for easy first garment crochet patterns? I’ve gathered a collection of some of my favourite crochet shrugs from around the web and put them all in one spot here for you. 

Basically, a crocheted shrug (aka blanket sweater) is a cropped, cardigan-like garment that is based on rectangle, square or even a circle folded in half and then seamed at the sides to form armholes.

By clicking on the name of the pattern and it’s designer, or on the picture itself, you will be taken directly to source of the pattern!
