This is an older pattern of mine, originally published for lettuce knit. I’ve rewritten it and updated the sizing, and now the Belle Shrug is available for purchase online!
Belle is an elegant and easy-to-knit shrug with a ruffled lace edging. Knit in one piece from cuff to cuff, with just two short seams and flexible sizing. Perfect for throwing on over casual or more dressy outfits, this is one piece that’s sure to please!
