Here's in brief what I did.  I hope that it makes sense and is helpful to everyone.
Take one of your t-shirts that you like the fit of for a guage. 
Chain enough so that you reach the length across, using the tip of t-shirt sleeve to tip of t-shirt sleeve, plus a few more chains.  This will determine the width of the shrug, allowing for sleeves approximately equal to that of the model t-shirt. 
Turn, single crochet in second chain from hook.  Single crochet across. 
Turn, *do two lover's knots (refer to earlier link for more on lover's knot), single crochet in 4th single crochet of previous row from hook*.  Repeat across.  When you reach the end, do two more lover's knots and turn. 
Next row:  single crochet in end of first lover's knot from last row (you'll need to reference to the earlier link to probably see what I mean here). 
*Make two lover's knots, single crochet in the end of the first lover's knot of the second group of two lover's knots*.  Repeat across. 
Continue in this manner until you have reached a rectangle of sufficient size so that the rectangle can be folded in half lengthwise (this is going in accordance with vysews drop-stitch knit shrug pattern) and sew up sides of rectangles enough to make arm holes.  I estimate that my shrug was 15 inches in height, then folded over, and I sewed up the sleeves two inches.

thanks microgirl! Those instructions do make sense.

i did a swatch up last night and i was useing a thin yarn (baby weight) and a small hook (3.0) and it worked up really fast and looks good. i'm excited to buy some yarn to make a whole shrug.

I've only been knitting shrugs - this came out excellent. I should grab my hook.

hmm, I've been handed a yummy variegated yarn that I was wondering what to do with ( there's about 3 ozs, so not enough to tackle anything large) I think a shrug would be just the thing. Thanks for the great directions.

Great job!  Any idea how much yardage you used?  Would a skein of Koigu sock yarn work well for this?
