Knitting bolero for women

Kid mohair-silk lace shrug

Shrug knitting patternShrug is worked from side to side, flat, then the sleeves are seamed and stitches are picked up around the body for the ribbed edging, which is knitted in the round. This is a garment designed to float on you and is designed to have a lot of positive ease in the width of the garment. Please note that chart shows RS rows only - WS rows are purled.
