Ethereal Lace Shrug
Ethereal lace shrug is a casual and easy to wear shrug. Light as air and simple in design, it can be worn over bare shoulders with ease during the cold evenings.

The garment is worked flat (back and forth) from the neck down,it is practically seamless, the only sewing is for the buttons if you opt for having one.
A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches. I would suggest using different colors markers to mark the lace section at back.
This pattern requires the knitter to work from a chart.
