Blossom Shrug ~
Free Crochet Pattern
I entered a competition for young crocheters called Future Face of Crochet and made this Blossom Shrug. The purpose of the competition was to bring young crocheters to the public eye. I had tested Rhelena’s Blossom Top and I really liked the design of the stitch. I chose to use this stitch for my shrug with a simple trim.
Over the course of the past few weeks there have been several requests for the Blossom Shrug. Now you can make one for yourself or to give as a gift. I hope you enjoy it!
