For the edgings I used the Loop Stitch while the rest of the shrug was knitted in Stockinette Stitch. The design is simple where it is knitted in a one-piece rectangular shape and is later sewn together to form the shrug. After using the mattress stitch to sew the sides together, I picked up stitches around the armhole and added the Loop Stitch edging to match the edging around the body.
