A little more than a shawl but a little less than a sweater, Shirley Paden's shrug is a simple rectangle with cuffs. Of course, a luxurious cashmere-silk yarn worked in an intricate diamond-cable pattern makes it anything but ordinary. The shrug can be worn as shown, or take your arms out of the sleeves and throw it on as an encompassing shawl or wrap.
