K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

This is such a cute little fur shrug for a little girl. I can imagine how fancy my daughter would have felt wearing this when she was young. She loved getting dressed up. This shrug seems like it would be pretty warm also. I also think it could be worked as a full size coat with just some math.
