This loose 1920’s-inspired shrug is worked using a combination of two stitch patterns that are at the same time exquisitely beautiful and deceptively simple. Elegant and relaxed over a chemise or equally awesome with a tank top and jeans.

Shrug is knit from side to side in one piece. Cast-on and bound-off edges on fronts and sleeves use picot edging. A few short rows add extra flutter to the sleeves. The only seams are across shoulders and a few stitches under the arms.

XS (S, M, ML, L, XL); recommended for chest sizes
28-31, 32-35, 36-40, 41-45, 46-51, 52-57)“ with cross-back measurements of 19½ (21½, 23½, 25½, 27¾, 30¾)”. Sizing is determined mainly by neck and shoulder widths and armhole depth.
The fit should be very loose. Sweater shown is size M worn over a 36” bust.

Sample was knit using Sunday Knits Angelic 3 ply in wren. This yarn typically works up at 25-28 sts per 4” in stockinette stitch. Substitute any plump fingering or light sport weight yarn that works nicely to gauge. Louet Euroflax linen would be a lovely warm weather substitute.

Skills used:
Knitted cast on for picot edges, lace knitting worked on both right side and wrong side of fabric, short rows (explained).

Pattern includes:
Written instructions, stitch patterns in both written and charted form, schematics, glossary and abbreviations, of course!
