I have a real thing for the new look of shrugs/capelets/partial ponchos .... whatever you want to call them. They look so chic and sophisticated! Here's one I just finished -- this one is going to be donated to the Spring Event fund-raiser at Bishop Machebeuf High School.
Here's a close-up of the really easy eyelet pattern on the bodice -- the edges are a simple eyelet rib. This capelet/shrug is knit from the neck down, so it goes quite quickly.
