I just saw a Crochet crowd video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4nKXcf5ExE&feature=em-uploademail ) of a shrug made out of a granny square. It has a written design too ( http://thecrochetcrowd.com/crochet-modern-granny-shrug/ ), and calls for a square about the size of the squared granny. I think I am going to turn mine into one!
You can also make it a temporary one by attaching ties to the corners and tying it together. Or get some big buttons and sew them back to back and pull them through the spaces, a couple rows in from the corner.
I will try mine in temp mode so I can use it as a bed decoration in the non cold months. How about letting me know what you think? Got any shrug patterns you favor?
Here is one made out of just a rectangle, and worn three different ways….
And last, here is a Janket! Because it just buttons together and can be used as a blanket too… (http://katidcreations.com/jacket-blanket-janket/ )
Happy hookin guys!
(and stay warm!)
