Ribbed Shrug Knitting Pattern

It’s easy to make this shrug look interesting when the yarn has a bit of sparkle and changes shades as you knit! This is the perfect way to cover bare shoulders whatever the event.

Love it!

I absolutely love this pattern! I am an advanced crocheter, but very inexperienced with knitting. It's hard to find easy, fashionable patterns that don't require a lot of shaping, cables, etc. I made this using the exact yarn shown, and it turned out beautiful! Simple rib pattern (k3,p3) throughout is wonderful for practicing stitches, and there is no need to tote a pattern around with you, so it's great for on-the-go! If I can knit this, anyone can! :)
