Just the garment to wear over a sleeveless or strapless dress.The Matinee Shrug begins at the center back on double point needles (changing to circular needles) until a square is made. The sleeves are picked up on each side and knit down. Finally a small border is worked all the way around to pull it all together. This shrug works up quickly in light worsted weight yarn or DK weight yarn.
