This versatile shrug can be worn with a variety of outfits whether you live in Jane Austen’s world or are out and about in this day and age. The lace edging aspires to a certain romantic sensibility, not unlike Marianne Dashwood in Sense and Sensibility. Replacing the button and neckbands of a classic v-neck raglan with a continuous casing through which a ribbon is threaded and cinched creates gathers and a complementary silhouette without complicating the construction. A variety of looks can be achieved depending upon the ribbon chosen and the amount it is cinched.

Knitted with a laceweight yarn, this shrug makes a great layering piece that can be worn spring through fall.
