Crocheted C2C Granny Stitch Cocoon Shrug
Welcome to my free pattern for Crocheted C2C Granny Stitch Cocoon Shrug. I will admit I’m a little addicted to corner to corner crocheting. Have you tried corner to corner using the the granny stitch? It’s another lovely way to use corner to corner technique. My pattern for Crocheted C2C Granny Stitch Cocoon Shrug was inspired by watching Poldark on PBS Masterpiece. I’m in love with Demelza’s hair and when I look at Lion Brand’s Heartland yarn in Yosemite I think Demelza! I wanted to create a cocoon with the shades of rust that Yosemite offers. You can choose any color you desire in worsted weight yarn for this project.
To make a Crocheted C2C Granny Stitch Cocoon Shrug, you will create one giant square using the C2C Granny Stitch. Sarah at Repeat Crafter Me just posted an excellent tutorial with videos on how to do this stitch. I highly recommend you check it out as I’m not going to write out each and every row to make a square. I created a square to match my body which is a medium/large size. If you want to make your square smaller or larger you can still follow same steps for assembly. After creating a C2C granny stitch square and simple cluster border is added which looks nice in the assembly. Adding a collar is the finishing touch. This would look super cute in a child’s size which I hope to make soon.
Worsted Weight Yarn. 2 Skeins Lion Brand Heartland in Yosemite , Any worsted weight will work you need 14 oz.
CH = Chain
DC = Double Crochet
SC = Single Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
FP DC = Front Post Double Crochet
BP DC = Back Post Double Crochet
SL ST = Slip Stitch
Create a C2C Granny Stitch Square with 37 rows on the increase and 36 rows on the decrease. You will be able to count 37 rows going up by counting clusters on side and diagonally.
On the last cluster SL ST to gap between clusters and start border.
Row 1 – 5 : CH 2, DC, 2 DC in next gap between clusters. Continue with 2 DC in gap between clusters and 2 DC , CH 1, 2 DC in corners. SL ST to first CH 2. Fasten off and leave a tail to sew in.
To assemble you will made a diamond shape out of a square. I like to count the number of clusters and measure to make each side even. Laying your square on a flat surface with right side of square facing you. You will take sides of square and fold them in making your square look like a diamond. Slip stitching a seam from the border inwards and create an arm whole. I measured my arm whole to be an 22 clusters total or 11 clusters on each side or seam 5.5 inches and arm whole 8.5 inches. Do this on both sides and its time to add a collar.
With right side of cocoon out and facing you, attach yarn 4 stitches below arm seams.
Row 1: CH 1, HDC in next stitch, DC around to next arm seam. At arm seam DC, DC, HDC, SC. Turn work.
Row 2: SL ST, SC, FP DC, BP DC, repeat FP DC, BP DC around until last 2 stitches, SC, then SL ST. Turn work.
Row 3: SL ST, SC, FP DC, BP DC, repeat FP DC, BP DC around until last 2 stitches, SC, then SL ST. Fasten off and leave a tail to sew in.
