Pattern Description:

Shrugs. I can't get enough of them :)) I think, I will make one for each month of a year and will name them accordingly. There are so many designs in my head, for this simple garment, that I will never run out of ideas.

So, this one I named MAY, to celebrate this beautiful month. Made out of 100% wool - which is still relevant fiber for a spring. I used Paton Classic Wool in a beautiful color Seafoam, but one could use any worsted yarn. It is fast and relatively easy project. Will make a great gift ))

My pattern contains 5 pages of detailed instructions and pictures to guide you thought the process of making this garment.

Happy Knitting!
