This simple extra-long shrug is paired with a tank for maximum figure flattery. Both pieces are created with a two by two rib stitch pattern. The tank is worked bottom up in pieces. It has a neckline finished with an edging created by a narrow picked up band. The shrug is worked cuff to cuff. Wear the shrug with the extra length wrapped around your neck or wrapped around the body. To wrap shrug around body, put one arm in, wrap shrug over top of opposite shoulder, across front of torso, under the arm already in the sleeve, across back and then insert arm in second sleeve section. Secure with shawl pin placing as shown in photo.
