Nineteen Twenty is an open-front shrug, featuring an eye-catching lace detail in the back and worked in a luxurious silk-blend yarn for plenty of shine and drape. The stockinette body is knit in one piece from bottom up, then the sides are partially seamed to make the armholes, and finally stitches are picked up around the body and armholes for the garter trims.
The newly laid out and fully revised pattern now includes a much-requested Large size!
The lace panel is both written and charted.
