The Palm Beach Shrug is a quick project and uses one of the more economical yarns available, the 16 oz Pound of Love by Lion Brand. This yarn is acrylic but has a very soft hand. It works up into a very light and airy garment with an L hook. And best of all, you can wear it all the time because it is completely washable!
Like the Up-Tempo Vest, this shrug is constructed from two long strips that are then seamed up the back and sides. This time I added a shawl collar but you can omit the collar if you like. You can also make the shrug longer or shorter. Just make your strips longer or shorter!
Even in Palm Beach, the weather sometimes turns cool at night. It’s nice to have something lightweight and soft to throw over your shoulders. Actually, I was in Palm Beach when I developed this pattern, hence the name.
