Top 15 Stylish Crochet Shrug Patterns – All FREE!

933 Shares

Do you like to wear shrugs? I sure do! They are such an easy way to dress up an outfit. They also provide more modesty if you don’t feel comfortable wearing tank tops or strapless dresses. Plus, there are so many different styles to choose from! Some free crochet shrug patterns are more solid and some are more lacey. They can be short sleeve or long sleeve. Some shrugs are designed to be fitted and some are more generous with their construction.

I curated this list of my top 15 free crochet shrug patterns to give you a good sampling of what all is out there. Check it out and see which ones you fancy!
