Get ready to be warm and cozy with these easy crochet cocoon shrug patterns. Crochet shrugs are the perfect complement to any outfit.

A crochet shrug is a garment that covers your shoulders and upper body. It’s usually made with a rectangular piece of fabric, which is then sewn or crocheted together at the sides.
