Summer Sunday Shrug
I love shrugs!
So cute, so handy, so quick to make!
This shrug features an attractive construction with back/front worked as one piece. The shrug gradually widens towards the shoulders giving you a freedom of movement and comfort.
The 2-stich cable pattern is as eye-catching as it is simple. The sides are picked up from the front/back piece and worked straight, so the only two seams that you will need to sew are the sides.
It will look stunning in solid or variegated yarns.
