Crochet The Paige Cocoon Shrug
Hello everyone! I hope you are well. Today I am bringing to you a new crochet tutorial on how to crochet The Paige Cocoon Shrug.
This is a super easy and fun project to crochet. It is very beginner friendly, and can be a great first time wearable crochet make. It is also very cosy, and the perfect accessory and cover up that can go with every outfit! Do you like crocheting shrugs as much as I do? They are the perfect accessory for chilly Winter nights. I love them so much.

This is a lovely shrug type of cardigan. It is crocheted in chunky yarn, so it is super warm and cosy! This project is also a very simple and straightforward. It’s the perfect therapeutic WIP (work in progress) for an Autumn evening.
Crochet The Paige Cocoon Shrug: the design
The design for this cocoon shrug is very simple. We simply crochet a granny square until it measures the desired size (sizes and measurements are indicated in the pattern). Once the granny square is finished, we simply fold it in half. The sleeves and front rows of the shrug are then added. These are a very simple repeat of rows, finishing with a chain arch edging.
The pattern for The Paige Cocoon Shrug is inclusive. The sizes range from S to 3 XL. It’s very easy to crochet, and can be adapted to any person’s size.
I hope you enjoy it! Let me know in the comments if you did.
Crochet The Paige Cocoon Shrug: The yarn
The yarn I used for this pattern is James C Brett Marble Chunky. This is a variegated British yarn that can be easily substituted by any other chunky yarn.
Chunky yarn is great for Autumn/Winter projects!! It really does give that extra warmth, as well as a very cosy vibe. James C Brett Marble chunky has a very wide range of colours, which is great for crochet projects. It’s also very high quality. This yarn is also 100% acrylic, which makes it a great choice for Christmas and birthday gifts.
Do you like chunky yarn as much as I do? I would love to know!
