Brisa Shrug is a dressy little number to throw on over a simple dress to warm your shoulders on a cool night or for a little something special with your fancy cocktail dress. Beads float gently at the top of eyelets adding a bit of “bling”, though you can easily not use beads and still have a great lacey topper. Brisa Shrug is worked in two parts from the sleeve to the center back and then grafted down the back. The sleeves and edging are worked with feather and fan stitch (a personal favorite!) The eyelet stitch pattern is a 6 stitch, 4 row repeat and EASY to memorize… promise!
