This loose 1920's-inspired shrug is worked using a combination of two stitch patterns that are at the same time exquisitely beautiful and deceptively simple. Elegant and relaxed over a chemise or equally awesome with a tank top and jeans.
Construction: Shrug is knit from side to side in one piece. Cast-on and bound-off edges on fronts and sleeves use picot edging. A few short rows add extra flutter to the sleeves. The only seams are across the shoulders and a few stitches under the arms.
15 stitches and 28 rows = 4" in pattern stitch. Stitch and row gauges are interdependent and both equally important. Adjust needle size if necessary.
