What, only one size? And what IS the size??? Pretty pattern, but why make it if we can't tell what size it is?

Hello jmstump28 9335649! Yes, the pattern indicates this shrug is one size. The dimensions given are as follows: "About 15 x 25 in. (38 x 65 cm), before edging is added." Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeDIYWeddings
