La Isla Bonita

La Isla Bonita

This lightweight shrug is perfect for all year round; wear it over a favorite sundress in the cool summer evenings, or a posh dress for that special occasion, or simply over favorite top on the way to school or kindergarten.  The shrug is worked as a modified top down raglan and features ¾ length bell sleeves with optional striking cable work.

Unlike like the rest of the designs in my “La Isla Bonita” ebook, this shrug is worked to a sport weight gauge. However it still requires just 1 skein of fingering weight yarn for most sizes.
