Right from the first time I laid eyes on this shrug style, I was smitten. Even though this design is not new, both crocheters and knitters continue tweaking this design creating new and interesting variations.
Spring and summer is coming, I have to hope, and probably a wedding or shower are in the offing.
The inspirational image above has all the elements of a perfect outfit for such an occasion, elegant and effortless.
Once you look at the construction of the shrug, you begin to see how you can truly personalize this style to suit different moods and trends.
At this point on the fashion meter, the needle is turned to the bohemian look, incorporating global travel, patterns and colour. In other words hippy style, my favourite.
Having said that, I am definitely going to make a version of the above style as there is always room for looking polished.
