The Rivulet Shrug is a versatile, collared shrug that can be worn as pictured or with wide or narrow draped lapels and styled with Jul Pedestal Buttons (www.juldesigns.com ). No buttonholes are required! Can be worn with negative or positive ease, each size fits a wide range of people because of the stretchy stitch pattern and fastening options. All the slipped sts in the stitch pattern are slipped purlwise, wyif on rs and wyib on ws. If you do it the other way around, wyif on ws and wyib on rs, it will be nice also. **Uses 800 - 1200 yards of worsted or aran weight yarn.
