"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. 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."

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.

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.
