Lightweight Summer Shrug | Fashion

 This is a very lightweight and comfy oversized shrug that is perfect for summer. 

Lightweight summer shrug that is very easy and breezy to work up!

One size fits most, with instructions to make it bigger in the pattern.

Gauge - 7 repeats of the main pattern to get 4". If you have any questions, please contact me.

I used Simply Soft by Caron in Coffee Latte Brown but I also like "I Love This Yarn!" in Tweed by Hobby Lobby.

I used about 5 skeins of the Caron yarn.
