Asymmetry Lace: a Sampler Shrug
This elegant shrug is worked from cuff to cuff blending a variety of lace patterns. Any solid or semi-solid (i.e. kettle dyed) fingering weight yarn would be lovely. Pattern includes 12 pages of written and charted instructions, with a special help section on creating an “invisible” join in lace and many pictures. Also included are instructions for making a stole rather than a shrug (purchase additional yarn for making a stole).
note: for shorter sleeves, pattern repeats may be omitted as desired
