I love shrugs! So cute, so handy, so quick to make! This shrug features an attractive construction with back/front worked as one piece. The shrug gradually widens towards the shoulders giving you a freedom of movement and comfort. The 2-stich cable pattern is as eye-catching as it is simple. The sides are picked up from the front/back piece and worked straight, so the only two seams that you will need to sew are the sides. It will look stunning in solid or variegated yarns.
