They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman

My Shrug
Thanks All!!! I love that shrug! It seems like a trend in wearing shrug now, and i believe those who love to knit will not buy a knitted shrug rather than knit ourselves....

Amber

The pattern as below and i use a mix cotton blend yarn (DK...):-

As I prefer it to be bigger and longer and with sort of raglan sleeve, therefore, i increase the stitch to bigger (80sts).

***********************
Original is a sleeveless shrug!!!

Materials:
size 10.5 circular needles 16" (you'll be knitting back and forth, not in the round)
worsted weight yarn (less than a skein)

CO 40 stitches
Row 1: *k1, p1, rep. from * to end of row
Row 2: *p1, k1, rep. from * to end of row

Repeat rows 1 and 2 five times for a total of 10 rows

Row 11: knit across
Row 12: *k1, yo, rep. from * to end of row
Row 13: *k1, drop yo, rep. from * to end of row
Row 14: knit across

Repeat rows 11-14 until the drop stitch section reaches across the back from shoulder to shoulder

Knit 10 rows in seed stitch (as beginning)

Bind off

Fold in half and sew seed stitch rows to form your sleeves.

It is easy and fast. xxx xxx xxx
