Shabby Chic Viola Shrug (Quick Tutorial)


  • 2 skeins of Bernat Home Bundle ™ for 4T-5T +. 1 skein should be sufficient for a smaller size. (Yarn is available only at JoAnns)
  • M13 hook, 9mm (I used Bates)
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors
  • Stitch markers (optional but helpful)


  • I did not write the full pattern for this tutorial. You will make a granny square. Crochet 9 rounds for 2T, 10 rounds for 3T, 11 rounds for a 4T-5T. Want a larger shrug? Add rounds.. subtract rounds for a smaller shrug! I’d recommend adding 1-2 rounds for each size increase.
  • If you are unsure how to crochet a classic granny square, search YouTube for a “classic granny square” & meet me back here when you’ve completed the square. 😀
  • I crocheted 11 rounds. Granny square should measure approximately 24″ w.
  • Fold your granny square so it looks like the example below..
  • Sew or stitch the square together as shown below. You should have a total of 12 stitches. I used slip stitches to complete. 
  • Complete on the other side of the shrug. 
  • Your work should resemble the example below..
  • Add a boarder of SC to the arms.. you should have approximately 32 SC around each arm. I crocheted 3 rounds of SC.
  • Add a boarder to the center of the shrug. I crocheted one round of SC.
  • Sew in ends & trim excess yarn.
  • That’s it!
