Wear this pretty shrug with a skirt or dress, or jeans for a more casual look. The button sets it off, but you could weave a wide satin ribbon through the front corners for a more girly, feminine style. Using a very large hook helps the DK-weight yarn drape well. To make this even
dressier, repeat the lace edging from the sleeves at the bottom edge.

Beginning chain is at lower edge. If you prefer, instead of closing with a button, you can weave a wide ribbon through and close with a bow. There are no seams at the shoulders and top of arms. The only seams are at shirt sides and under the sleeves.
