A heavier nubby yarn frames disks of airy laceweight yarn, which in turn surround large eyelets of space and light.
The main body of the shrug is knitted first as a widthwise rectangle, with lower and upper edges softly scalloped and the sides at the arm edges slightly tapered with short rows.
The lace rib stitch cuffs are picked up and worked circularly beginning at the side selvedges of the main body, thus resulting in a no-sew "when you are done, you are done" project.
Choose two yarns, each in a different color variegation one yarn in a slightly heavier texture, and the other in a lighter weight smooth yarn. You can pick colorways that have a slight tonal shift to give a luminous effect, but of course you don't have to limit yourself to that.
