If you love an oversized cosy knit, then here it is! This quick knit pattern works equally well as a plain coloured simple knit or feel free to get creative by adding different colours, using your chosen chunky yarn.
The Oversized Slouchy Shrug is easy to knit- there is no shaping at all!
It is worked in one piece using basic stockinette stitch. A circular needle will accommodate the large number of stitches.
