Pattern Release: Summer Sunday Shrug


I love shrugs!
So cute, so handy, so quick to make! 
And how nice it feels to put it on a sunny Sunday morning with a pretty dress, even if you are not going anywhere...

The Summer Sunday 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.
