Short and sweet, shrugs are the perfect summer (or year ’round) alternative to a sweater or a shawl. Two pieces combine for quick knitting. To give textural interest, an overall openwork pattern is discerningly put to use. The sleeves begin with snug, ribbed cuffs and expand to a slightly bloused look. A narrow band finishes the neckline and lower edges.
