The Baryon Shrug is a great project for intermediate knitters wanting to work on a fun pattern while building your skills. The front of the shrug is worked from the bottom up while the back and sleeves are worked from side to side in one long rectangle. The back-neck panel is worked by picking up stitches along the top edge of the back/sleeve panel and shaping is worked to match shoulder shaping in the front.
