Pattern Description:

I don't think you have to be an expert knitter to create a fabulous, fashionable garment. So here's my Ridiculously Easy Fashion Shrug. It's a quick and RIDICULOUSLY EASY knit and as you can see by the photos, it looks fabulous! Instructions include sizes Small through 3X. Pam is modeling a size Small and Elaine is modeling a 3X.

If you'd like to view another shrug design, please check out my Easy Lacy Twisty Glamour Shrug Pattern. It's a similar design, with a knitted rib and Tunisian Crochet body. If you're unfamiliar with Tunisian Crochet, don't worry! The pattern includes detailed instructions to help you make your first Tunisian Crochet project. That's me wearing the shrug in the photo with my husband Mike; we celebrated our 45th anniversary on August 25, 2013!

As with all my designs, if you have any questions as you work through the pattern, please let me know. I want you to have a fun experience with a fabulous result.

NOTE: THANKS TO BUYER "MRS GW" FOR ALLOWING ME TO POST HER PHOTO IN HER COMPLETED BLACK AND GRAY SHRUG. DON'T YOU THINK SHE LOOKS FABULOUS?
