This cabled shrug has a unique twist, with spiraling cabled sleeves. Esmerelda is worked top-down with raglan construction until the sleeves. The sleeve stitches are then put on holders while the back is worked back and forth. The sleeves are then worked top-down in the round until the desired length. Lastly, the trim is applied around the edge of the shrug, creating a shawl collar around the neckline.

Note: Esmerelda is made to fit tightly with minimal ease, although the sizing runs a bit small (especially in the sleeves), so if between sizes you should probably go with the larger size.
