Recently, a friend of mine wore her triangular lace shawl with the ends tied together on her back. I loved the look!

Needless to say, my friend is tiny and thus a regular size shawl will work for her. But, if you are woman sized, like me, the shawl would have to be rather large. But, I really liked the concept of wearing a lace shawl in that manner. That is how I came up with the idea for this lace shrug.

Skills Needed:
If you are an intermediate knitter, you should be able to easily work this shrug. The shrug is knit in all lace, BUT it is an easy lace pattern that has a 10 stitch repeat. As long as you use stitch markers to mark the repeats, you will be fine.
Stitches Used: k2tog, YO, SSK, K, P

XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL-4XL) - Chest size is not so critical for deciding what size to knit. Measurement across the back is important. I will post more of this sizing information with CLue 1.

Yarn Suggestions:
Any worsted or aran weight summer type yarn with a posted gauge of 18 sts/4” –

For Example: Cascade Yarns Pima Tencel, Cascade Yarns Pima Silk, Knit Picks Shine Worsted, Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece, Knitting Fever King Tut, Hobby Lobby I love this Cotton, Debbie Bliss Pure Cotton - all these yarns will work well.
