Thank you! It's very plain but I like it. My knitting instructor says you can make them alot fancier. She made one that looks like it has sea shell patterns knitted into it, with open holes. Not ver warm that way but very pretty.
This is her Pattern:
Size 9 DPN's
cast on 48sts
k2,p2,rib for 4'' or 7'' cuff (I MADE THE 7''CUFF)
Increase to 96 sts by knitting into the front and back of each st,onto your circular needle.
knit back and forth until shrug is 4'' or 7'' less then arm length.
make sure you don't knit in the round. when you start the next round the next st doesn't connect to the last sts. You don't want to end up with a huge tube!
make other cuff and bind off.
I used a 32''US 7 80cm/4.5mm circular for the cuff and
I used 24''US 9 60cm/5.5mm circular needle for the shrug.I also made the length from cuff to cuff a bit longer as I have a long reach, and I sewed on the inside from cuff to the opening of inside shelve up for about 2'' I think it give the shrug more strenght at the shleve and cuff.
Let me know how it comes out. I'm on my way to get more yarn to start my next one!!
also ,you can make the cuff on circular needle but I haven't seen any video's here to demo that ! I did try it and I thought it was easier then the dpn's
shrug folds over to make collar on it's own
