Easy Boho Shrug - petite to plus sizes Wide sleeves

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • knit 2 stitches together
  • knit into front and back of the same stitch to increase

Pattern Description:

A delightful comfy shrug to snuggle up and keep those arms and shoulders warm, on those cold winter or chilly autumn days. It's easier than you may think, with wide sleeves and, textured cuffs and collar in a simple bobble pattern. The collar and border is deep, so you can hold it up around your neck or fold in half inwards (as shown) to provide a solid neck line.
This will dress up jeans with some pretty long necklaces or go perfectly with a dress, even a winter wedding dress perhaps? You could substitute the collar for faux fur.
I've tried to make this really simple to do and make up. There's no complicated pick up along the neck edgethe neck border is knit as a separate piece and you sew it on after.
