Easy Shrug Pattern

Easy Shrug Pattern

It is worked up and down. I used H hook with worsted weight yarn.

**NOTE: I made this pattern to fit me...I wear a small/medium. If you wear a bigger or smaller size, you will need to adjust accordingly. Also this pattern is for personal use only, please do not sell the pattern or the product, as I am giving it to you for free and it took several hours to write it down. Don’t hesitate to ask questions and please let me know if I need to tweak the pattern. Thanks, and enjoy!**
