Well people this is my first post! I am excited to share a pattern that i have adapted from another pattern http://carmenbeeblog.blogspot.com/2010/04/9-to-5.html Nicole Carmen's 9-5 shrug.

I have made an infant and toddler version of this pattern, the smaller size will be the first number given in the pattern, the second number will be in parenthesis. This is a very versatile pattern and once you start working it you will understand how to increase and decrease the size. The smaller versions bust would fit best on 6-9 mos mine was about 7 in wide, and the larger version is 9 in wide, and would fit a 4-5 year old. you could also use different hooks to obtain different sizes.

Ok so what do you need:
any yarn you like ( I used worsted scraps)
5mm crochet hook
yarn needle
4 markers (bobby pins, or small yarn pieces work well)

dc-double crochet

Foundation chain
ch 5(7) and insert marker
ch 7(9) and insert marker
ch 16(18) and insert marker
ch 7(9) and insert marker
ch 4(6)

Row 1: chain 3 and dc into 4th ch from hook, dc in the next 3(5) stitches, when you get to the marker, this means you are going to increase by 3dc in the same stitch. dc in the next 7(9) st, 3dc in same st, dc in the next 16(18) st, 3dc in same st, dc in the next 7(9) st, 3dc in same st, dc in the next 5(7) st

******always increase in the middle of your last increase*******

Row 2: chain 3( counts as first dc), and turn dc into the NEXT dc( do not dc into the very first ch, skip that one, your work will have a better edge) until you reach the center of your increase, and do 3dc in same st. Do this all the way accross.

Repeat row 2 until you can fold the increases together to form arm holes. For the smaller one i did 5 rows, and for the larger one i did 6 rows.

Row 6(7): dc accross untill you get to your increase st, skip all the stitches until the next increase and join the two, continue to dc accross till you get to the next increase st, skip all the stitches until the next increase and join the two, continue to dc in the last sts.

Row 7(9): dc accross, there are no more increases, and repeat this row to desired length, for the smaller one i had 8 rows in total, and for the larger one I had 10.

Well that wasnt so bad I hope!

As for edging, the possibilities are endless, i happen to like reverse single crochet

I also have a flower on mine which can be whipped up like this:
chain 3, form a ring
rnd 1: 6 sc in ring, do not connect together with slip stich
rnd 2: 2hdc and slip stich in each sc, tie off thats it

Good luck, i hope my instructions were ok! and the adult version is just as cute, visit the link above for her instructions
