Fancy yarns demand simple or clever silhouettes. Make a few miters and combine them with a ripple pattern for a shrug that is flattering for most everyone.
Split one skein in half and the other into thirds so you will have 5 balls of yarn to work the Back.
Weave in tails as you go to avoid extra work later.
A 16-inch circular needle each of 5mm/US8 and 4mm/US6 is suggested.
