A versatile, long-sleeved layer perfect for the great outdoors.Thumb openings in the deep cuffs provide built-in fingerless mitts for frosty mornings. Or, wrap this shrug around your neck and tuck one cuff into the other for a cozy cowl.

A fabulous, wearable garment for so many reasons: fingering weight yarn, slip stitch cuffs, “linked lace” stitch in the body, join-as-you-go finishing (in the round) for custom seaming and fit …

Construction of this shrug considers the variables of hand dyed yarn. The cuffs and edgings are done with one skein, and the sleeve panels are done with the other. This eliminates the need to work from both skeins simultaneously … cue happy dance now!
