PATTERN INFORMATION
THREE IN ONE—RUFFLED SHRUG; FANNY WRAP AND SHOULDER CHILL CHASER
(Perfect for all air conditioning situations, (movies, supermarkets, malls, etc.)
This pretty and useful shrug/wrap is very easy to knit and will make wonder how you did without this. For a contrast the ruffle is reverse stockinette stitch and the shrug is stockinette stitch.

Wrap it around your waist and tie for a fanny cover-up. Wrap and tie for a shoulder cover up, and when you need relief from the cool weather outside or inside (air conditioning), slip your arms through the sleeves for a stylish shrug.
Without thinking about it I found myself using the hanging sleeves when the wrap was around my waist to open germ ridden doorknobs going into stores and while walking pressing the traffic light buttons. Knit a second one, and leave in your car for the times when you need an emergency cover-up.
The easy to follow pattern includes:
• Schematic with dimensions
• A helpful tracking sheet
• Diagrams and full explanations for techniques
• A pattern helpline
