This warm little shrug is perfect for you evening out. The elegant lace pattern gives the shrug a nice luxurious look. Knit from the cuff up, the pieces are sewn together using a modified form of the kitchener stitch. The ribbing around the neck is added afterwards and is slightly wider on the top for the collar. The yarn is a tightly plied merino/silk/cashmere blend. The tight ply gives the lace pattern good definition. The model shown is in a size medium.
