This shrug uses the same lace pattern as the ginkgo top (and almost the same stitch count!), but with much heavier yarn and larger hooks. Basically, a blown up version of the ginkgo lace pattern.

The shrug measures 38.5″ from cuff to cuff, and 20″ from neckline to bottom edge.

It’s a very quick make, took me 2 evenings to finish while watching TV :)

To increase the length from cuff to cuff, i.e. longer sleeves, add multiples of 6 ch to foundation chain. 6 stitches = 1.75″
