Worked top down in one piece, this "big collar" shrug closes with one large button.
Sleeves are worked from shoulder to cuff in rounds, and fitted shoulders and area above hem are worked back and forth with optional short row shaping.
There is a decrease panel down top of sleeves and at underarm, for a more tailored fit.
Folded cuffs are deep to compliment the big collar.
In Stockinette stitch, 11 sts and 15 rows = 2" (5cm)
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.
