This shrug has been developed by popular demand for a shrug using my hand painted yarn but was not too hard but available as a complete kit. Well I put my thinking cap on and this was the result. It is suitable for a beginner but interesting for someone with more experience. It uses lace knitting techniques but is very forgiving in the pattern, yarn and sizing so is a great design to experiment with. It requires the minimum in finishing and the yarn is easy to care for and can be ironed using a hot steam iron...and it has sparkles in the yarn! (best seen in the balls of yarn pictures in zoom).
Each kit contains a ball of hand painted yarn, A pair of bamboo knitting needles A sewing needle to weave in the ends and pins to mark the sleeve length comprehensive pattern with sizing from small to extra large, finishing and care instructions Packed into a paper carrier. (main picture is on the front of the kit)
The yarn included is 50g/c. 400m of 75% extra fine merino, 20% silk and 5% stelina sparkle.
Hand wash, dry flat, do not tumble dry, hot steam iron.
If you would like to substitute the yarn in these kits for any others please contact me. It is a very forgiving pattern and would work with my other yarns listed.
