Kerry Shrug

One of my most popular patterns has been the Kerry Shrug.

It was first published in Crochet! magazine - Spring 2013.

Then it was featured in an episode of Knit and Crochet Now! -
Season 4 - Episode 402.

(More details about where to find the pattern and purchase the episode can be found here and here.)

Last year Carol Chesick emailed me about her journey in making this shrug.  She had a few questions about the pattern but did most of it on her own.
Didn't she do a wonderful job?  I think it looks great on her.
Here is what Carol says about her experience with this shrug:

I just loved the look of the Kerry Shrug but was a little intimidated. Not sure I had the skills, but decided to soldier on. I am so glad I did. I made it to wear to a summer wedding and was actually quite surprised when no one mentioned anything about it. I guess I expected some reaction.

It was then I walked up on a conversation my adult son and his friends were having about MY shrug!! I never thought the praise and compliments would come from the groom and his groomsmen. It was then all their wives and girlfriends starting complimenting me on making such a beautiful piece.  It was an advanced pattern but well worth the effort.

I have since worn it not only with a dress but over a shirt with blue jeans as well. I feel so good in it.

Congratulations, Carol, on crocheting an advanced pattern and successfully creating a wearable piece of art!


  1. I love this pattern as well. It's nice to know I wasn't the only one that felt intimidated, I will have to give it a try now. Great job!
