By Sara Sach Posh Pooch Designs
What is a Shrug?
It's A waist length or short jacket, or sweater,
usually designed in Knit or Crochet.
It can be worn with any outfit from casual To fancy.
Morning, Brunch, or out for a evenly get together.
It so Comfortable you can wear it anytime and anywhere.
I designed the Firecracker Shrug a few years ago,
and wanted to up date the Pattern with a new yarn
since the precious yarn was no longer available.
I think The Red Heart Ombre is perfect.
This Colorway is called Hot Sauce.
This pattern has been up dated With Lot's of New
Pictures, And a Brand New Video.
