Gorgeous Goddess Shrug Crochet Pattern

While the difference between a shrug, a bolero, a shawl and a doilie should be pretty clear, fashion gets them all mixed up sometimes. To me this is a shrug because it covers the arms and it has a closure in the front so it is a garment, whereas a shawl is a rectangle that you just wrap around your shoulders.

Anyhow, what’s in a name?

This super fashionable women’s shrug is dubbed ‘the Goddess Shawl’referring back to ‘Aphrodite, the goddess of love. It’s a free crochet pattern.

If you look at how this crochet shrug drapes: it is made to look like it has lovely short sleeves. It’s the perfect garment for the sunny Fall days. This homemade shawl has a lovely crochet design, fun and easy to wear.

I think it is fun – funky ‘Anthropologie like’ that this crochet shawl was inspired by a vintage crochet doily. So cool.
