Adorable seamless shrug that knits up in no time and uses very little yarn. Features a fun and easy textured pattern. Both the heartwarmer style and the textured stitch made me think of the entrechat, a ballet jump where the legs cross each other mid-air in a flutter. This shrug is knit seamlessly from the top down to the armpits. The raglan cap sleeves are then bound off and the back stitches are worked together with stitches picked up along each front raglans to form the body in one piece.
