SunRays Shrug/Shawl Pattern is Up!
My first garment pattern debuts!
SunRays is gorgeous shawl that easily converts to a shrug.
Its figured fabric is formed by a uniquely beautiful blend of
crocheted fans and clusters which shape, texture and define the garment.
It can be buttoned for a close embrace or unbound, will grace shoulders, warm laps, or wrap your neck.
SunRays offers a flattering shape for all body types.
This is an intermediate level pattern.

I was enamored of this stitch pattern I created and used first as a neckwarmer and decided it would look wonderful as a shrug.
4. Very simple construction: the only sewing is of the buttons
