The Ragged Falls Cocoon Shrug Pattern combines the fun and easy stitch pattern of the Ragged Falls Poncho and Ragged Fall Scarf patterns, along with the simplicty of cocoon shrug construction! I am hopeful that Spring will be here before we know it and this kind of layering piece will become a wardrobe staple. It’s long shot up here in Northern Ontario, but a girl can hope, right? Layered over long sleeves in colder temps, or to keep shoulders warm when worn over a tank, the Ragged Falls Cocoon Shrug is exactly what your little girl needs!

If I’m reading this right, it’s going to take almost 9 balls of yarn to complete an 8/10 size? That’s $90.00 of yarn. Can I substitute a less expensive yarn?
Susan..the way I read it, is less than 5 balls..you maybe had been looking at the worsted weight in the suggested yarn…there is 196 yds in the dk. Still pricey for a kids shrug.
It says Yarns similar in fiber content and weight can be substituted. I found some at Joanns that is DK #3 and it seems to be working ok. I also used a coupon so that saved me some $$.
Just a question about the Band part of this. Should step 4 and the line underneath it be switched? I know enough about crocheting that I can understand that you need to work around before you attach it together, but someone else might get confused.
