Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic shaping.
  • cables (2-cross cables)
  • working in the round
  • picking up stitches

Pattern Description:

Mera, Revisited is a versatile raglan shrug in which the garment and sleeve borders feature a reversible cable pattern, allowing you to wear the shrug in many different ways. The collar can be worn flat or folded back, and the sleeve cuffs can be worn down for a three-quarter sleeve, or turned up for a half-sleeve.

I originally designed Mera for Bijou Basin Ranch. Requests were made for a pattern that would accommodate worsted weight yarns. Mera, Revisited includes a wider upper sleeve to and looser fit to accommodate using a heavier yarn, yarn substitution information and instructions on flipping the cable design. Shrug is worked top down and sleeves worked in the round. After the body, sleeves and sleeve cuffs are completed, stitches are picked up to work the reversible cable border.

Please note that Mera, Revisited does not have the same fit as Mera, which was intended for a tighter fit with little-to-no ease using a pretty fantastic yarn for which I have not found a comparable substitute in terms of gauge, texture and yarn's inherent properties to recommend to knitters. Mera is only available for purchase through Bijou Basin Ranch. Mera, Revisited is a separate reworked pattern, not an errata to Mera.
