Create a masterpiece in color and texture to wrap your body in style and comfort. Palette of Colors Shrug features interplay of tonal harmony across coordinated colorways of heavier textured yarn and finer smooth yarn. A heavier nubby yarn frames disks of airy laceweight yarn, which in turn surround large eyelets of space and light. The main body of the shrug is knitted first as a widthwise rectangle, with lower and upper edges softly scalloped and the sides at the arm edges slightly tapered with short rows. The lace rib stitch cuffs are picked up and worked circularly beginning at the side selvedges of the main body, thus resulting in a no-sew "when you are done, you are done" project. Written stitch instructions. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit, purl, yarn over GAUGE 17 sts = 4 inches SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 5 sizes from Petite to Extra-Large with cuff to cuff measurements of 55[58, 61, 64, 68]"
