Shrugs Shawls

for standard gauge knitting machines to download after payment.

designed and illustrated by Jo Whessell

Shrugs knitted in stocking stitch. One size fits all, although 2 sizes are given for the 4 ply shrug.  Instructions given for 4 ply version & an extra version for those thin industrial yarns which hate to be shaped.

This is a loose fitting shrug, a pattern which is slightly different and that’s what makes it work so well.  This is NOT a rectangle with a cuff at each end.

Easy to knit, easy to complete the same day.
