This shrug has several unique elements, including long cuffs that double as lacy fingerless mitts, and invisible sleeve increases that create a flattering fitted shoulder at the top of each arm. All this in a total package that looks complex but is easy to knit once you know the basic increases and decreases. This garment makes an elegant and unusual wrap for a wedding or other special occasion.
