A delightful comfy shrug to snuggle up and keep those arms and shoulders warm, on those cold winter or chilly autumn days. It's easier than you may think, with wide sleeves and, textured cuffs and collar in a simple bobble pattern. The collar and border is deep, so you can hold it up around your neck or fold in half inwards (as shown) to provide a solid neck line.
This will dress up jeans with some pretty long necklaces or go perfectly with a dress, even a winter wedding dress perhaps? You could substitute the collar for faux fur.
I've tried to make this really simple to do and make up. There's no complicated pick up along the neck edgethe neck border is knit as a separate piece and you sew it on after.

A creative Brit living in Colorado, I've been knitting since 7 years old. I crochet, draw, paint, craft, remodel houses and anything else that gets my fickle attention! Knitting, is very therapeutic to me, it slows me down and centers me. I started creating my own patterns in 2011, just, well because and was amazed they sold on etsy. It was just a fun little hobby that earned me some holiday andf yarn money that year. But, I got hooked (no pun intended!) and really love the creative process, combining stitches for textures along with combined with the math calulation. Sometimes designs will just come to me when I see a certain style someone is wearing and think about what would look nice in a neckline. Sometimes I find an interesting stitch technique and fabric and imagine a design in it. Sometimes it takes many weeks and trial and errors to work something out. I can't tell you how many times I start, get 1/2 way and then pull it out and start again! I think my mix of creative and methodical is due to being ambidextrous - I'm left handed but knit right handed, along with many things I do in life.
I knit English style, I learned to speed knit from my great aunt by tucking my right needle under my right arm and let my left / dominant hand do the work. It allows me to work fast while getting great, even tension throughout the project.
I've owned my own knitting shop in the past, but now knit for fun and design easy, practical, wearable knitwear that a beginner or experienced beginner can work. I currently sell my patterns on Etsy.com, Ravelry.com and here. One day, I hope to run a blog and add video instruction to my patterns; but like many, time prohibits. Until then, they are written instructions and charts.
I'm always willing to help my customers with any questions and welcome feedback to improve or add patterns that customers suggest.
