Updated September 06, 2018
stylishly simple shrug IR

Sometimes, less is more. The Stylishly Simple Shrug proves that classic construction and clean lines will always be in vogue. This easy knitted shrug pattern is perfect for offering an extra bit of warmth on a cool summer evening. The Stylishly Simple Shrug is also a versatile accent piece for dresses, skirts, and tops. This knitted shrug pattern is worked flat on a circular needle to accommodate the large number of stitches. With no shaping, the Stylishly Simple Shrug lives up to its name.

Garment is worked flat on a circular needle to accommodate large number of stitches.

Garment is a large rectangle with no shaping. Once folded, short seams form armholes. Bottom edge (cast on) becomes lower hem, upper edge (bind off) folds to become collar and front edges.

This attractive, easy to knit shrug would make a perfect gift for everyone that is female on your gift list. I intend to make several for myself in various colors and yarns.

Darling shrug is so easy, anyone can knit this in four to five hours. Be daring use different types of yarn for varied looks.

This is a super simple pattern knit entirely in stockinette with ribbing at the beginning and end. Its basically a large square that is easily adaptable to different sizes simply by changing the number of cast on stitches. The wool blend yarn suggested for this shrug makes it very breathable, but it might be fun to make it out of silk or rayon as a dressy accessory.
