Starting at center back, cast on 48 sts. 1st row (right side): P 3, * k 1, O, p 3. Repeat from * across to within last 5 sts, k 5 loosely. 2nd row: K 5 loosely, * k 3, drop the O, with yarn in front of work slip the next st as if to purl.

Finishing: Sew 48 cast-on sts to 48 bound-off sts matching patterns—this is lower center back seam. Lay out doubled piece having seam in center of 15-inch area between sleeves—sleeves are now folded in half. Matching patterns, sew cast-on sts to bound-off sts of each sleeve. Allowing for stretch between shoulders, sew both 15-inch edges between sleeves together—this last seam and lower back seam form a T at center back when Shrug is worn. Press seams through a damp cloth. Slip arms in sleeves. The garter st edge will roll back to form a collar.
