Athena Crochet Shrug Pattern by Kristin Omdahl
This is a quick project that transforms a simple stitch pattern into a gorgeous shrug using a few increase rows. Each side of the shrug begins at the cuff and is worked toward the center. Upon completion of the second half, the two sides are crocheted together in pattern for a seamless construction.
