"Saturday Shrug" by Jackie Rose @thelambandkid

We love it when the simplest of knits creates the most perfect project, the garment that you'll want to own in a variety of colors.  And the Saturday Shrug is that project! We're using US 7 (4.5mm) needles to make our shrug.

The pattern is a bit of a recipe but you should be covered with 4 skeins of Lucca in your main color and 1 skein of your contrast color. Add another skein of each if you knit tightly or want a bigger shrug. Finished measurements are approximately 20in (51cm) tall by 13in (33cm) wide with a 26in (66cm) circumference.    

The "Saturday Shrug" Recipe by Jackie Rose is available free on Ravelry.
