Full Circle has been in the works for quite some time … Many Thanks to Kathy Dean for helping to wrap it up! I have always wanted to knit and wear a shrug / bolero and just haven’t found one that fits me well. Full Circle is made to fit your back and then you can make the fronts / edging as long as you want. Have fun with choosing your colors!
