Knit a shrug as fascinating as you are! The back is an attention-grabbing Counterpane pattern, worked from the inside-out to create a hypnotic swirl. Raglan sleeves join with the Counterpane to create a garment that always looks polished, whether you wear it as a shrug for warmth or tied over your shoulders for a little extra coverage. Use the collar and trims to experiment with colors and textures for a shrug that’s all you.
