There are rewards to working a favorite lace pattern in a sport-weight yarn: The pattern grows quickly before your eyes, and the larger-than-usual motifs add drama to an otherwise understated garment. Lisa Daehlin's lacy shrug showcases a warm, shoulder-cuddling merino. Each half of the shrug is worked on two needles from the center back to midsleeve, then joined and worked in the round for ribbed cuffs. Take care to block the pieces gently to preserve the dimensional effect of the leaf motifs.
