"Perfect for spring and summer wear, this little shrug knits up quickly with no seams to sew. Knit in one piece from the neck down, (it's) similar to a top down raglan without a front," says Galeskas helpfully. "When body is complete to underarms, sleeves are completed one at a time. Stitches are then picked up around neck and body for the shawl collar and lower back border." Incredibly fetching, this abbreviated little piece adds an extra note of femininity to whatever you choose to wear with it, and is suitable for a wide variety of novelty or precious yarns.
