Autumn Shrug

Autumn Shrug

Fall was already here and from my window I could see the leaves dancing to the wind. It wasn’t  quiet cold for a sweater so I needed something a just a little warm. After some thoughts this shrug came to life.

I got the lace pattern from the book “Lace collection for Knitting” but I adapted it to my own shrug. There is a scalloped edge on the shoulders that gives a lovely and feminine detail.

I am small petite so the shrug is for small/medium size, if you wanted a little wider just add 14 more stitches for the leaves pattern.

Enjoy!
