This cute doll shrug is designed to fit the 11.5″ Barbie doll. But since there is no stitch multiple, you can just as easy crochet this to fit other dolls as well. Simply make your chains to reach across the back and to where you want the shrug to come out to at the arms and away you go.
For the Barbie doll shrug, you only need a small amount of yarn, making it great for using up your smallest odds and ends.
