Hello fellow crafters!

After giving this much though, I've come to realize I need some knitting gods/godesses help.

I've been drooling over some drapey sleeveless shrugs I've seen online an hoping to knit one. Finally I found the perfect yarn, but I'm a bit confused on how to make one. I know some knitters have knitted rectangles with sleeveholes.... but it's not really what I have in mind.

So this is the dream-shrug....


I know its crocheted, but I was hoping to knit one... Any good ideas on how to knit it?

Or do you think it has to be crocheted?


... I just want butterfly mornings and wild flower afternoons

I'm not sure about the stitch pattern. But it could be knit in 4 pieces. The back, left front, right front ( maybe triangular shaped) and then a long rectangle that makes the collar and the drape in the front.

The non-lacey parts look like garter ridges, so maybe it is a garter stitch dropped stitch pattern? I don't have enough crochet experience to see if that is crocheted or not.  It also looks like it could be knit on big needles too.  I would try and find a similar pattern that has already been done first, before I try doing it from scratch.  Checking out freeknittingpatterns.com or Ravelry would be my first go to places, probably under vest as opposed to shrugs/wraps.
