My daughter (age 3, size 4/5) is a flower girl in a December wedding and will be wearing a dress with spaghetti straps (!!!). I found some beautiful chunky yarn that I want to use to make her a simple shrug to wear at least before and after the ceremony, at the reception, etc. I'm an advanced knitter, but time is extremely limited, so if there's a simple, quick pattern using chunky yarn out there I'd love to see it! I just don't have the time or energy to make up my own or do any math to convert something. (I'm sleep deprived thanks to her baby sister!)

Thanks for your help,

I don't know of any specific patterns, but have you thought of checking knitty (www.knitty.com)?  they usually have good stuff.

I have a vintage bolero pattern for a toddler, really cute and simple.  I think it is for a smaller size, but I also think it is made in either a sport or worsted yarn, so you may be able to adjust the size just by using your chunky yarn.  I'll look when I get home and see if it would be suitable.

Sometimes I post at Lothruin.com!

What about Anthropologie-inspired capelet- By julsey723 . That is the first page of a very long thread (60 pages) from the knitalong topic. Here is the link to the actual pattern page in craftster and here is the PDF version from Julsey's blog.
On this page is aschenebly's instructions (about half way down - the picture is a couple of pages earlier) for the one she did for a 15 month old.

There are some more that were made child size in the knitalong thread but I quit looking after I found the one linked above. They are really cute and fast to make. I think it might be more comfortable and stay on better than a traditional sleeves and back only shrug.
