This is my own version of a shrug. A shrug is a short sweater to chase a chill away. This would be a perfect bed jacket for a friend in the hospital. Or just to throw on when the nights are a little cool.
Approximate Time A couple evenings in front of the TV
This is not a conventional pattern, since I am not a professional pattern writer, but it is a simple pattern and should be easy enough for a beginner. It is a one-piece pattern. The only sewing needed is to form the sleeves. The pattern begins at one cuff and ends at the other cuff. If you have any problems, email me for assistance.
The measurement examples are my personal measurements.
Begin by taking measurements in inches.

Oh what great idea !!
Thank you for sharing your pattern with me.
My friend's 87 yr mother has recently gone to a nursing home facility. This will be a great thing to crochet for her. You know how chilly your arms get sometimes.....
With your Chill Chaser Shrug, she won't find it necessary to wear her long house coat while she is in bed. This is perfect !!

Thank you. I made such a shrug many years ago for my mother and lost the pattern. I know wanted to make one for my mother in law who has become bed ridden and this is exactly what I was looking for.
