Pattern Description:

The Bell Sleeve shrug is a perfect addition to any little girl's wardrobe. It can be worn with jeans over T-shirt for casual look; or it can be paired with a beautiful dress for a more dressed up look.

The shrug is worked all in in ONE PIECE, seamlessly top down, just weave in a loose ends and it's ready to be worn. It is also a very QUICK knit (about 6 - 8 hrs), so it's a great WEEKEND project or as a GIFT. Great STASH BUSTER project.

I made these shrugs for my daughters a few years ago and to this day they love wearing them - I just have to keep making bigger sizes.
