Shrugs have remained popular over the decades because they flatter the figure and complement many outfits. In this design, I pay homage to a variety of cables for unusual texture in a thick, warm wrap. The body is worked back and forth in rows in a pretty cable and rib pattern. Through two series of short-rows, the flat fabric is manipulated into a long oval shape. The collar is picked up from the body and worked in a cable pattern against a k1, p1 ribbed foundation to form reversible fabric. Wear the collar standing up for drama or fold it over for a more casual look.
