This classic shrug is the perfect project for knitters who are looking to try complex lace knitting. Using only one or two skeins of fingering weight yarn, it’s less of a commitment than a large shawl. However, it will give you a good feel for what knitting complex lace is like, so it’s a great way to ease yourself into advanced projects. The lace stitch pattern will have you working yarn overs and decreases from the wrong side as well as the right side of your knitting. It will require quite a bit of your attention, but the simple shape of the shrug keeps things from getting too complicated.
