Free Shrug Knitting Pattern

Welcome to the Vine Lace Summer Shrug knitting pattern! This beautiful shrug is perfect for those warm summer days and chilly summer nights. The pretty lace pattern adds a touch of elegance and femininity to any outfit.

The Vine Lace Summer Shrug is worked in three separate parts - two sleeves and a back - and then sewn together for a comfortable and flattering fit. The lace pattern is both simple and striking, making it a perfect project for intermediate knitters looking to expand their skills.

To complete your summer ensemble, there is a pattern for a matching sleeveless top that pairs perfectly with the Vine Lace Summer Shrug. This top is worked in the same delicate lace pattern as the shrug and will be a stylish addition to your wardrobe.

I added the Icord around the neck and sleeve openings of the Shrug. That really finished it off and it looks great
