One Skein Knit Shrug »
InstructionsI preferred to do a provisional cast-on. Also, on the increase rows, I saved the left front increase for the first stitch on the purl/WS (pfb) of the work because i found the edging to be "cleaner" to pick up the stitches for the Neckline Trim .
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Casual, Romantic, Cute
What was your inspiration?
The name of this shrug was the inspiration...that and that this is a Stephanie Japel design/workshop.
What are you most proud of?
I've made eight(!) of these shrugs and everyone I've given them to LOVES it! :)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Sometimes it is best to take the shoulder-to-shoulder measurement in addition to the measurement across the back, in-between the armpits. I had to knit an extra shrug because a friend of mine's shoulders were more narrow than her across the back measurement so the shrug was too tight.
