I needed a layer to wear to an upcoming wedding and I also needed a knitting project that was memorizable for an easy travel project. This pretty and practical shrug is the result! “Danis” is our nick-name for the wedding couple as well as the name of this pattern.

The shrug comes in 3 sizes. Each size starts at 20”/50cm at the neckline and then grows on a 90 degree angle along the raglan seams to the almost-ruffled hemline. Sizing width-wise is flexible like a poncho; increases vary the sleeve and body length evenly. The sample is made in the 42¾”/108.5cm (measured at hemline) size and is shown on a model with a 39”/99cm bust. See schematic for more sizing details.

Tools:
US 6 (4mm) 36 (60, 60)”/90 (150, 150)cm circular and double pointed needles or needle size necessary to obtain gauge. US 3 (3.25mm) 16”/40cm circular; cable needle; 10 stitch markers; tapestry needle.

Materials:
4 (5, 6) skeins Malabrigo Arroyo, 100% superwash Merino; 335y/ 306m; 3.5 oz/ 100g. Sample shown in Borrajas. Optional: ½”/1.25 cm button(s).
