This cabled shrug is meant to be worn over a coat or jacket to give extra warmth during the cold autumn evenings. It is inspired by the Oquirrh Mountains in Utah mimicking the glacier carved canyons and yellow hue of this iconic mountain range. The shrug is knit with Bulky Bare Wool of the Andes and hand-dyed with Turmeric. Hand dying the yarn gives the knitter control over the intensity of the color as well as any variegation she would want. The shrug can also be knit with Wool of the Andes Bulky, suggested color: Honey.

The beautiful Oquirrh Mountains are the western border of Salt Lake County. The name, pronounced like "Ochre", has nothing to do with the mineral or the color; it comes from a Goshute word meaning "Wooded Mountain". Although, with canyon names like Yellow Fork Canyon and Butterfield Canyon, the idea of yellow has always been associated with the Oquirrhs.
