Toddler Striped Shrug

Toddler Striped Shrug
Erica Knudson

The example in the photo was made with worsted weight yarn and a size I crochet hook. (I changed yarn color for each stripe and used a single color for the border.)

Chain 70 + 2 for base chain – 72

1. Dc in third ch from hook and each st across – 70

2. Turn, ch 2, dc in each st across – 70

3. Repeat row 2 twelve (12) more times for a total of fourteen (14) rows or stripes.

4. Border:

Continue, as in last rows, with a ch 2 and dc across, but continue on around the entire border of the shrug. *I crocheted dc along the long edges and hdc along the short edges, which will be the arm holes. So, in each corner, I used 3 hdc to make it smooth.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

5. Seams:

Bring together long sides of rectangle with the “right side” facing out. One side at a time, on the long edges you brought together, sc 12 sts in from the end towards the middle. (Do this on the other side, also.)

Sl st, fasten off, and weave in ends. *I recommend using the same color to seam that you used in the border.


ch = chain
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
st = stitch
sl st = silp stitch
