Off the needles: easy shrug

This shrug pattern is so easy! It's basically a long rectangle in stockinette stitch with a few rows of garter stitch at the cuffs. The pattern is "Alpaca Brush Shrug" from a leaflet that I bought at the Knitting Addiction shop at Kill Devil Hills, NC. I knit it out of Lion Brand's Amazing in the wildflowers colorway. There was too much murky brown in this variegated yarn for my taste, so I used more skeins and cut out the color runs that didn't appeal to me. I used the leftovers to crochet a scarf (photo later).
