Item details

I am very pleased with the outcome of this shrug and happy to offer it as a downloadable PDF pattern for you to enjoy knitting it with your favorite yarn.

This pattern is simple but knits up fast with needle size US 10/11 (6 - 8 mm), and shows off hand-spun yarn very beautifully, in fact I designed the pattern with hand-spun yarn in mind.

Use smaller needles for a thicker fabric, use larger needles for a more loftier fabric, depending on the yarn and style you like.

It is really a very simple knit from sleeve to sleeve with a variation of stockinette, garter ridges and garter ridge lace sequences, some with a twist to naturally create a bell shaped sleeve.

The fit is flattering to any body type and will adorn any of your sleeveless tops and dresses just beautifully.

It can be knit with as little as 4 ounces of hand-spun yarn, between 200 - 300 yds of semi bulky yarn loveliness.

You can also just work the sleeves with hand-spun yarn and the back with commercially processed yarn from your stash or vice versa. There are endless possibilities :)

What makes it a specially elegant piece of art is the knitted garter ridge edge finished with crochet lace & flower bud accents. You can also add a ribbed edging or just crochet around it in a contrasting or complementary colored yarn.

The hand-spun yarns I used to knit the shrugs shown in this listing are from my limited edition Lunamuse Fiberart hand-spun yarn.

Please convo me with any questions.

Happy Knitting :)

Additional policies

Each item has been crafted with a lot of love and handiwork in a smoke free environment, and is unique either in fiber, color or design or all of the above.

Most of my designs are truly one of a kind, because I use my own hand-spun and hand-dyed yarns. I also will occasionally use commercial yarns, but will not promote a particular brand. I mostly work with my own patterns. I also draw inspiration from printed patterns, but overall hardly work from a particular one pattern and oftentimes end up combining various elements from what catches my attention and inspiration.

I do want to state that I have 2 short-haired non-shedding dogs (Chocolate Lab & Weimeraner X), but they know to stay out of their mommy's fiber palace. Very rarely do I find a stray hair in any of my fiber projects.

I am happy to spin any of my spinning batts that I am offering here on the site for you. Just contact me :)

If you see an item that sold or want a current listing in a different color, contact me. If I can, I will make another one or discuss different color/fiber options with you.

I am always happy to trade and barter. Just make me an offer :)
