I guess craftster has been down for a little bit…
Since a few of you have requested the pattern, here it is (it’s from the top of my noodle - I didn’t write it down):
Yarn: Worsted weight - about 50 grams.
(I’m not sure on the exact amount since I used a lonely ball from my stash that didn’t have a label, but it was a lot less than I thought it would be.)
needles: US 10.5 16" circulars
(You don’t work in the round, but the circs help you because you’re not smooshing the stitches all on one needle.)
row 1: *k1, p1 repeat from * until end of row.
row 2: *p1, k1 repeat from * until end of row.
Continue in moss stitch (rows 1 and 2) for a total of 10 rows.
row 11: Knit
for the body:
row 1: *k1, yo repeat from * until end of row (you’ll end with just a k1, though)
row 2: Knit across, dropping all yo’s.
row 3: Knit
That’s it. Continue in pattern until the body reaches across your back.
Do 10 rows of moss stitch for other arm.
To finish, sew up the moss stitch part to form the armholes.
Find a summer dress, slap on your new shrug, and go out on the town!
