I'm going through a shrug phase again.....
And its still cold here !
And what's not to love about a shrug. Its the perfect quick fix when your feeling just a little chilled & in need of only a little coverage. So easy to knit even though i am DROWNING in projects, not to mention ideas for my New line of Baby hats Inspired by our little Princess Ruby !
Afterall, a shrug is only a rectangle with a bit of sleeve shaping.
This is the cabled version I'm working on today.......not quite finished, still got the left sleeve shaping to do. When complete the pattern will be on my Shetland wool site for FREE. Will add all the page links when i finally get it finished !
My Quick knit shrug is this little beauty below.......knit from Shetland Tundra yarn with 15% Qiviut !
I dyed the grey yarn Navy blue & wanted it plain to go with my dress for Ruby's Birthday party on Saturday.....already a year old, my time does past fast. On Saturday its supposed to be 10 degree's......wow barmy !
|Deep ribbed cuffs-4.5'' inches long|
I love deep ribbed cuffs because you can pull them back & they just stay there ! The yarn too has lots of bounce & holds it shape really well. The shrug is soft & warm but not too warm-perfect for a Spring day.
This shrug has No fronts, its simply a rectangle with sleeve shaping !
Is a close fitting garment.
the measurements: Armspan-56'' inches.
armpit to wrist-17.5'' inches
Depth-back neck to hem-26'' unraveld & raveled edge-22''
