This adorable shrug is created with a puff stitch pattern for the body, a popcorn stitch for the cuffs, and a delicate netting stitch for the collar. The combined effect of these three stitch patterns is an elegant piece that would work well in an office, yet dress up any outfit for an evening on the town.
