  1. Cut out a large rectangle 60in wide x 30in tall.

  2. If desired, finish the two longest edges of the shrug with a 4 thread overlock stitch. The shrug pictured has unfinished edges.

  3. Fold the rectangle right sides together, matching the short edges. Stitch with a narrow 4 thread overlock stitch and coordinating thread. (needles: left and right; length: 3; width: 6; stitch

  4. Using an embroidery needle with a large eye, thread your serger tails and weave them under the stitching. Trim off any excess thread.

  5. To wear as a shrug - pull the loop over head and spread at the waist. Twist in front once to create a second loop, then pull this loop over the head. Spread fabric out over shoulders.

  6. To wear as a scarf, hold out on arms as one loop. Twist once to form two loops. Hold the loops together and slip over head.
