This simple raglan shrug is knitted in one piece, seamlessly from the neck down. The ribbed border is picked up and knitted all around.

It is a perfect layering piece for dresses and slim fitted tops, that does not look bulky at all, while still keeping the chill off!
And thanks to the big size of the wool and needles it is very quick to knit (you can easily finish it in one day).

The PDF provides detailed instructions for a long-sleeved version and a ¾ sleeve version.

This pattern has been completely rewritten, tech-edited and tested. The new and updated PDF is available for purchase starting January 2014.

A big Grazie to Michela LaMicky for translating this pattern into Italian!
