Notes
1) This garment is meant to be a bit oversized. The size that you choose will determine the circumference of your sleeves and the length of your shrug down your back.
2) The length of your sleeves is completely adjustable, determined by your own unique measurements.
3) There is no need to cut your yarn after each stripe. Simply carry your yarn up the side by twisting the new color around the old at each color change.
4) To omit the stripes, work stitches for stripe patterns in a single color.
