Vaya shrug is the perfect "go to" shrug for dressing up a tank or long sleeve shirt and for popping over a dress!  Vaya is worked top-down, flat, and back and forth on a circular needle.  Virtually seamless, all you need to sew is 2 small sleeve seams.... not so painful!  One thing I LOVE about this shrug is how good it looks on a variety of body types.  Please see my blog post about this pattern for more detailed information.
