Cozy and elegant cocoon shaped shrug with dolman sleeves, knit in a super quick and easy sideways garter rib with bobble accents.

Knitting starts center back using a provisional cast on, followed by a few bobbles, then a few short rows for a nice fit at the neckline. Front edges are also provisionally cast on and decreased to form a mitered edge under the arm. The resulting piece is a simple rectangle. Seams are sewn along the upper arm and shoulder, and the edging is knitted all around.

Shown in size SM. The model is petite and normally wears a size 2.

Easy to knit … easy to wear!
