I was hoping someone could share or dirrect me to a pattern for a shrug that I would like to make for myself. I would like it to be either long or 3/4 sleeve with no collar…pretty much just the sleeves. I’d also like it to be fitted (not baggy b/c that would make me look bulky due to my frame). I like this one I found on Etsy but I’d really pefer to save $ and make it myself. Check it out at
Thanks for your help!
