Dragon Scale Shrug
This shrug is written for a custom fit with loose fitting sleeves, covering only the arms and the back across the shoulder blades with a long tie “closure” across the collarbone in the front.
(Must have knowledge of how to work around the post of a stitch. Previous knowledge of the Crocodile Stitch is helpful, but there are many tutorials online to learn the basics of the stitch pattern.)
Back – 15” (16”, 17”) Measured from shoulder to shoulder over the shoulder blades. Length is customized by the armhole measurement of the finished sleeve.
Sleeves – 7” (8”, 9”) Wrist Circumference, at the least 1” larger than actual wrist measurement. Length is customizable.
