This one-piece, top-down, elbow-length shrug is worked in stocking stitch with ribbed edging around body and cuffs.

Val Love on

I can't remember when I couldn't knit, crochet or sew. I am inspired by yarn I find, trends I see on the street, window shopping in Manhattan and suggestions from fellow knitters and crocheters. My goal is to create stylish patterns that are easy to wear, and to find the simplest way to construct them.
