What was your inspiration? Generations is the adult version of my childs Rosalyn shrug. Designed after a shrug knit by my grandmother for herself at a young age, which fits me like a glove now. Timeless and elegant, this too could be an heirloom handed down through the generations. Knit flat with minimal seaming to form sleeves. Pattern also offers tips/instructions on customizing size if sizes written do not suit your needs.
