You're going to love this super unique knit shrug! My pattern is easy to follow, and you'll wind up with a cross between a cropped cardigan and a traditional triangular shawl.
If you're anything like me, you love the look and warmth of a shawl, but hate that you have to hold it in place all night. With my Swallow Shrug knit shawl pattern, you'll end up with something that looks like a bolero in the front and a shawl in the back.
This beginner-level shrug will be your go-to layer for cool summer evenings or thrown on top of your favorite dress.

Knitting with Chopsticks
I’m Hortense, a passionate knitter, crocheter and yarn addict. I created Knitting with Chopsticks (www.knittingwithchopsticks.com) to share my creations and help you make your own.
It’s thanks to blogs that I have learned most of what I know about knitting and crochet. My mom taught me the basics of knitting whe n I was a small girl, bored on the beach (yep, that’s possible when you are 10) and since then I haven’t stopped. Always looking to learn, do more, do better and share my love of yarn, I created Knitting with Chopsticks to make knitting and crochet as simple as it gets so YOU can create what YOU want the way YOU want it.
Engineer by trade, crafter by passion, you will usually find me playing with some yarn while watching the latest episode of Grey’s Anatomy (and probably eating some chocolate, I’m from Belgium, what can I say?).
