I used exactly the same yarn as the knitted one (Palette Collection 018 in Navy Blue) and a hook size 6mm (the only one I seemed to find, I was sure I had a 4.5mm but I might have given it away since my first attempt at crochetting was a failure). Here is the result!

This is so easy to make and once you get the hang of it you can just do it while watching a movie.

I really like it, but I think that it would only be useful when it is very very hot. And let's face it, it's never going to be hot in Wales, so the crochet shrug will probably find its way to France, just in time for Mother's day (I also have my "lacy scarf" lined up for my mum but I doubt she'll be wearing it this time of year.)
Until next time,
