Beginner Scoop Shrug Knitting Pattern : Wrapped in Warmth

This is a free beginner scoop shrug knitting pattern that I designed so that anyone can knit it! It has a simple texture that lays flat and you can easily alter to fit your body and style. To keep the math at a minimum, it doesn’t have a border, it has a pretty slip stitch edge.
