Wear this sleeveless summertime shrug two ways! Shaped armholes give a neat fit, while the collar/bottom edge is much fuller on one side than the other. One way, garment forms a long, slimmer, more casual silhouette with a sweet smaller collar and fuller and longer lower back and front edge.

Flip the garment over and swap armholes, and the collar forms a lovely capelet to keep your shoulders warm over a bare dress or top. Worn this way, the length is shorter for a flattering dressy effect.

Either way, this garment can be overlapped in front or pinned in a variety of ways.

Instructions are written in six sizes to fit size S-5X. It’s made with soft worsted-weight yarn.
