PATTERN NOTES
Airy and comfortable, this shrug will shield your shoulders on breezy days. Layer it over your favorite spring blouse or dress. Wear it open so that the overlapping fronts drape beautifully by your side, or wear it closed using a shawl pin or brooch to secure it. Either way, you’re sure to look elegant in this lovely, textured piece.

Violeta is worked flat in pieces and seamed. It features slip stitch, garter stitch, and ribbing details.
