Spring Fling Shrug - Knitting Pattern PDF
This Nordic inspired knit shrug pattern is worked flat (in rows) on long circular needles to accommodate the width. The chunky ribbing around the front and armholes are worked in the round after the piece is joined. Since there is minimal shaping, this pattern is good for focusing on and improving colorwork skills.
