This is a very simple shrug to make and a very impressive one too. The lace details on the neck and sleeves makes it very sophisticated. The shrug is worked in one piece, starting with one sleeve as a tube, going through the open back and then closing another tube for the second sleeve, continuing with the lace work on the second sleeve, all in one piece. Then you will continue to the first sleeve and neck. No sewing necessary.
Finished Width (across center back): Approximately 15”
Finished Length: Approximately 20”
Finished Length from Cuff to Cuff: Approximately 54”
Originally offered by elann.com as a free pattern. Visit international.elann.com to see currently available free patterns.
Over the years elann.com has offered a variety of free patterns to showcase elann brand yarns – this was one of them. As elann’s new site, international.elann.com, develops, many of these longtime favorite designs will be re-formatted and made available for purchase. This will be a time-consuming process, which we hope to accomplish by the end of 2015, so we ask for your patience.
Throughout this process, on a rotating basis, we’ll be offering 6 free patterns per month at international.elann.com. They’ll be free for one month, and then subsequently available for purchase as .pdf downloads. We encourage you to visit international.elann.com often to see our latest offerings.
