I was vacationing in Palm Beach when I made this shrug. :) It is very similar to my Up-Tempo Vest pattern but this time I added a collar and incorporated the ribbing into the body as I worked. The size is a 48" bust and you need an L hook. The whole thing is worked in half-double crochet and is simply two strips that are then sewn together. You can find the pattern here. :pinterest:facebook

I love it. :manyheart This is light enough to use here on the Island and not get too hot. It's also good enough to use to work in the air condition. As always, your patterns are so pretty. :cheer

Great Job! I know several women who would love to have one of these as part of their summertime wardrobe. Even the warmest summer days always cool down at night in my area (MI).

I can see myself looking for 1000 yards of something soft and fuzzy to make this! Really nice pattern. Thank you for sharing it.

Very nice, would a 48" bust pattern be a medium or a large?

Actually Dottie, I would consider that size to be an extra large but since this shrug is over-sized and drapey, it can be worn by just about anyone.

Thanks to the sharp eyes of all my friends here at the 'ville and on Ravelry, I've identified a few errors that needed correction. My blog has the up-dated pattern and it has been corrected on Ravelry also. The new link is:

to make it smaller would just making the strip not as wide work? So say instead of 12" it would be 8 or 10?

That's exactly right! And to make it shorter or cropped you just make the strips shorter. But the key here is to use very thin yarn or a very big hook or both. Otherwise you just won't get the nice drape. You can use any stitch you like.
