A versatile layering piece, Patricia is packed with beautiful details: eye-catching lace leaves gracing the three-quarter sleeves; delicate sprinkling of pretty eyelets; and a crochet lace border providing an extra touch of femininity. Pattern also includes instructions for a textured rib border as a knit option. The shrug is constructed in two separate halves, each knitted sideways from cuff to center back. The two halves are joined together using three-needle bind off.

Red sample (size M) is finished with knit border, and grey sample (size L) is finished with crochet border.
