Easy to knit and a delight to wear, the new knitted criss-cross shrug is versatile, hip and flattering too! This simple and stylish shrug is a long rectangle, with a seamed ‘sleeve’ at each end. It can be wrapped and draped in several different ways. Optional fringe on the sleeves gives a splash of color. (

Shrug is worked with 2 strands of color A held together throughout. Remaining yarn is used for fringe.

Photos illustrate different ways to wear the shrug.

Because of the texture of Homespun, the fringe will fray when cut. If you prefer a non-frayed look you can knot the ends, knit or crochet a fringe, or use hairspray or Fray CheckTM by Dritz®.
