The shrug is worked in a very simple two-row lace stitch and is worked in one piece from cuff to cuff. The main body is knitted using 8mm (US 11) needles so knits up very quickly. There is no shaping required and is an extremely easy pattern to follow. Requires firm blocking to reveal the pattern fully. Full written instructions provided.
