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.

Swirling Leaves Rows Tutorial

If you have followed me for any length of time, you probably realize by now that I love and keep going back to the Swirling Leaves stitch. I love that stitch and am always looking for new ways to use it and new items to make with it. I never get tired of it. However, it is a stitch that pictures really do help when making the something from it for the first time. So I decided to make a photo tutorial for working Swirling Leaves rows. If you want to see how to work the stitch in the round, you can go HERE.

There are some new patterns coming soon using this stitch in rows and I already have a few others (blanket, vest, coffee cozy, bonnet, skinny scarf). I will be updating some of the older ones soon as I found “better” ways to work it from when I first started designing with Swirling Leaves. The patterns in the round will probably also be updated soon as well.

As many of you know by now, I have teamed up with 14 other AMAZING designers for the #HolidayStashdownCAL2015. This week is my pattern. Since I wasn’t sure what everyone would have in their stashes, I decided to give y’all options! Either option uses less than a single skein of yarn. The fine weight version uses about 75 yards total or the medium weight version uses just over 100 yards total. I made my sample version of the fine one with two colors and I cannot wait to see all of your creativity in making these! So, I hope you enjoy this free crochet pattern for the Swirling Leaves Wristlet.
