Vaya shrug is the perfect "go to" shrug for dressing up a tank or long sleeve shirt and for popping over a dress! Vaya is worked top-down, flat, and back and forth on a circular needle. Virtually seamless, all you need to sew is 2 small sleeve seams.... not so painful! One thing I LOVE about this shrug is how good it looks on a variety of body types.
It's easy to make this shrug wider or narrower by working more or less increase rows before you put the sleeve stitches into holders. Remember, though, if you only buy one skein of yarn you won't want to go too much bigger or you'll run out of yarn.
