Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • simple increases and decreases

Pattern Description:

While designing this shrug, I was inspired by the softness of a single-ply yarn worked in textured Seed Stitch and wanted to echo that feeling in gently curving lines in the garment itself. Short rows were the perfect way to achieve this, so I incorporated them into all horizontal edges of this shrug: the high collar, the bottom hem, and the sleeve cuff. The short rows and sloping edges also give the shrug body, and a bit of soft "puff". The final piece is a pretty winter garment, chic enough for wearing over party dresses, and cozy enough for cuddling up by the fire afterwards.

Gauge:

15 sts & 24 rows = 4"/ 10 cm in Seed St 16 sts & 20 rows = 4" / 10 cm in Stockinette St
