With its Art Deco-inspired stitch pattern, this shrug manages to be both dramatic and cozy

It's knit from a center-back provisional cast on to the wrists in a simple rectangle.

The dolman sleeves are formed by a seam along the upper arm.

The reverse stockinette trim - picked up and knit along the front and bottom edge - reflects a design element within the stitch pattern.
