I designed this shrug a couple years ago, and have worn it so many times- I just want to let you know that it wears and lasts beautifully! I used Sierra-a cotton/wool blend, but you could use cotton acrylic blend as well and get a beautiful, wearable shrug. One size is given, to fit XL-3XL plus size women.
It is very easy to make and a satisfying knit-working flat allows the lace to grow quickly. Because there are short pattern repeats, the lace stitch patterns are easy to memorize even for new lace knitters!
12 sts and 16 rows in 4" in Vine Lace Stitch Pattern with larger needles. To save time, take time to check gauge.
