This elegant shrug, knit from gorgeously airy laceweight mohair, allows the graceful Eyelet Leaves patterns to swoop along the bottom of the back and bloom upwards to a high back collar that elongates your back. Long sleeves work from a distinctly feminine scallop over the back of the hand to a stockinette arm to showcase the lace. The lace pattern does all the work, creating an intricate piece that will turn any outfit into an extraordinary ensemble.

Note re Eyelet Leaves It is difficult to measure and get an accurate stitch count because of the changing orientation of the stitches. The stitch gauge was taken by measuring the entire width of the 37 stitch pattern and dividing by the width. The row count is taken at the center, most vertical part, of the pattern.
