Swirling Leaves Child Shrug – Free Pattern

I love wearing tank tops and my daughter always likes to match her mama plus she has several dresses that she sometimes needs just a little bit of something on her shoulders especially in the air conditioning. The Swirling Leaves Child Shrug was designed with this in mind. And because Rebekah likes to match me, she requested that I make one for myself as well. And then she decided that HER baby needed one. So The Swirling Leaves Child Shrug quickly became a Mommy, Dolly and Me set. This pattern is my contribution to Cre8tion Crochet.

A few months ago, I received some lovely Deborah Norville Everyday from Premier Yarns. I was already a fan but this color just said Swirling Leaves to me and I decided to create something in the stitch from it but it took me a while to decide what. This particular one is one of the heathered colors.
