  • I love it. Just one thing I wondered, what should the dimensions be on each finished peices by? I understand this will vary to some degree depending on your size and how you want it to fit, but I just wanted something to work off from for my first granny shrug. I can't wait to show it off to my hooker friends. Thank you so much.

    • Finished hexagon motif.
    • You need to make a second.
  • 12.
    • The hexagon shape will fold in on itself to form an “L”
  • 13.
    • Once you have two hexagons completed lay them out as pictured.
    • If you’ve made the motifs reversible as I did then there really isn’t a right or wrong way to put it together.
  • 14.
    • Starting at the neck seam down the centre back seam.
    • I switched to a smaller hook so that I wasn’t trying to jam the monster 15mm through the stitches & just concentrated on making my stitches nice & loose. I used double crochet.
  • 15.
    • If you think you want to edge the shrug just “hold your place” while you seam the shoulders.
  • 16.
    • Position your neck opening & add markers.
  • 17.
    • Seam along to your marker.
    • Again, I used double crochet.
  • 18.
    • Once you hit your neck marker just slip stitch along the back of the neck opening until you reach the marker on the other side.
  • 19.
    • Then double crochet the other shoulder seam.
  • 20.
    • Now you can pick up the loop you marked at the base of the centre back seam & edge the garment if you wish.
    • I edged this one with double crochet.
  • 21.
    • Now weave in your ends. If you’ve used the Wilderness 100g balls then you shouldn’t have too many…hooray.
  • 22.
    • Wear your shrug with pride.
    • Seams in (as pictured) for a lovely drape OR seams out for a more structured look.
