One of my favorite travel destinations was a trip to the Venezuelan Amazon in the 1990s. Among the plethora of highlights was hiking along the bottom of the Orinoco River among the giant boulders during the dry season. During the wet season, these awesome wonders are completely submerged by the water.
The textures created by the cables in this shrug reminded me of the gorgeous riverbed landscape. The pattern includes instructions to work a long-sleeved or a three-quarter sleeved shrug, and instructions for the optional border.

Hello, I'm Anne Kuo Lukito. I'm a hand-knitting designer and my works have been published in many books and top magazines, such as Knitty, Interweave Knits, Knitscene and Twist Collective,. I've also contributed designs to and worked with several yarn companies. Recently, I designed the Fall Collection for Manos del Uruguay yarns.
While knitting is my dominant craft now, I've always been a crafter and sewer. I used to make my own clothes in high school and made jewelry. Two years ago, I got a bit into silversmithing as well.
Aside from freelance design work, I am also have a couple of publishing projects coming down the pike. I also have a small boutique business, Crafty Diversions (craftydiversions.com), which distributes other designers' patterns and products to yarn shops and retailers.
