Simple Crochet Shrug - simple pattern - goes together quickly and when people discover that I made mine - everyone wants one just like it! I used a variegated bamboo blend. It's just the right 'flash' to jazz up an old favorite. (and covers a few extra pounds, too!) Oh, and I got the yarn from Stash! on Cooper. Great store, friendly customers and lots of beautiful choices of fibers. Love it!!
