Hearts shrug

Spring was approaching quickly and the weather was getting warmer and warmer. It was time for something lighter than a sweater or cardigan so a shrug was  perfect!

I have designed this Heart Shrug for those days when is warm but a little chilly with the wind still a little cold or when the air conditioner is on for too long.

I’m a petite, thin woman so the size is small/medium, if you want it to make bigger you would have to add 14 more stitches for another heart pattern.

Next time I make this shrug I will use sports yarn and needles #5. It was a little big on me but I knit loose.
