You’re going to love this super unique knit shrug! My pattern is easy to follow, and you’ll wind up with a cross between a cropped cardigan and a traditional triangular shawl.

If you’re anything like me, you love the look and warmth of a shawl, but hate that you have to hold it in place all night. With my Swallow Shrug knit shawl pattern, you’ll end up with something that looks like a bolero in the front and a shawl in the back.

This beginner-level shrug will be your go-to layer for cool summer evenings or thrown on top of your favorite dress.
