This pattern was heavily inspired by the Pearl Pal Shrug pattern from Stoles & Shrugs | Spinnerin Volume 122 (1953). The original design can be found online but I rewrote it with some alterations in order to modernize the pattern and accommodate it to the larger 21st century wearer (fits an EU 38-42).
I made mine with mohair yarn, but you can use whichever fibre you prefer.
The pattern is easy af, there are only two different stitches used.
