Simply Striped Shrug
  0 customer reviews

This simple striped shrug is pure comfort knitting. The thick and thin texture of Billow yarn looks great instockinette. Thin stripes of two similar colors combined with the yarn’s texture gives the main body of the shrug a slightly tweedy appearance.
Because Billow is a 100% cotton yarn this shrug has the appeal of a nice cozy, chunky knit without being too warm to wear indoors or as Spring approaches.
The pattern is written in four standard sizes with instructions for customizing your fit.
1 skein each of Tea Rose and Ice Lily (or your two main body colors) will allow you to knit up to a 12" upper arm circumference in sizes small to x-large. To knit a wider armhole you’ll need another skein of each. If using only one color for the main body of the shrug (instead of striping) purchase 2 skeins for up to 12" and another skein for wider armholes. (Remember you’ll still need a skein for the ribbing as well!)

Finished Sizes:
Small (Medium, Large, X-Large)
Width (crossback) measurement: 24 (25, 26, 26)"
Length (minus ribbing): 10 (11.5, 12, 13.5)"
