WIP - Crochet Shrug

I've been working on a crochet shrug for the past few days. I just LOVE the colour I am working with. It's like a nice rich plum! Not that I like to eat plums. I just don't like the taste but the colour is beautiful :)


This shrug is very slow going. It's made just by using double crochet in the back loop only (that's single crochet for my US friends). The pattern is a freebie from Lion Brand Yarn called Simple Crochet Shrug and it really is simple too. How hard can it be to crochet a rectangle and sew parts of the sides together to make sleeves? Just my kind of pattern :D


I'm thinking I will send it to my niece for her birthday provided I get it finished in time (as I mentioned its slow going). Wish me luck :)
