Light Bell Sleeve Shrug
This light shrug is just the thing for fancy parties when you want something over your shoulders but a shawl is just too fiddly. It’ll also make you just feel a little special while out in jeans and a t-shirt. Either way, it’s quick and easy to work with a feather and fan pattern that hides shaping and a nice loose gauge. Block it aggressively for more drape, or barely at all for more arm-hugging shrugness.
