  This pretty, warm-weather shrug begins with a provisional cast on and the lace pattern is worked as a rectangle. The waste yarn is removed from the provisional cast on and some stitches are cast on at the underarms. The trim is then worked in the round for a few inches. For a stretchy and fun edge, the trim is bound off with some picots!

No seaming is required to make this piece.
