Crochet The Beautiful Rose Shrug/Cardigan
Hello everybody, and welcome back to my blog! Today I am bringing to you a pattern on how to Crochet The Beautiful Rose Shrug/Cardigan.
The weather here in the UK has been quite cold and very windy, so I thought I would bring you this soft and very warm and cosy cardigan design. This versatile and soft shrug/cardigan is absolutely perfect for those chilly days or evenings, while adding a little bohemian and feminine vibe. It’s perfect for all occasions and seasons, and the simple yet stylish design are a joy to work up.

A very feminine crochet cardigan
This lovely and feminine project is easy and so relaxing to crochet, and because the yarn I used is Hayfield Chunky with wool. It is soooo warm, perfect for staying cosy during a long winter walk in the fresh air, or just to chill out at home in front of the fire whilst you read (or crochet!).
Crochet The Beautiful Rose Shrug : a very easy crochet pattern
This project is easy to make as you start by creating a square out of rows of half double crochets. Once you have finished the square, you fold and sew it to create your shape, before adding your border on the sleeves and front of the cardigan. The shell edging on the border gives it a very romantic and feminine feel, as does the soft pink colour, making it a great project for winter as it is always nice to break away from the dark tones so present during this season.
