Pattern Notes

This shrug is knit from the bottom up. Work all increases as lifted increases. To help get your bearings, remember that the top of your shrug does not have a border. Because the stitch pattern is loosely knit, buttonholes are not needed; buttons easily fit through holes in the fabric.
