A shawl-collared shrug, Eve’s Ribs uses my Adam’s Ribs stitch pattern over the back and arms and it’s own lacey variation for the front and collar. Both stitch patterns are easy and reversible.
The shrug is knit in one piece from the top down, with seams under arms and down sides. Pattern includes instructions for 4 sizes and 4 different sleeve options - long tapered sleeves (shown in Angelic smoke), long sleeves with a flared cuff, mid-length with a bell (shown in Angelic nut), and cap sleeves.
Because of its unusual construction, the shrug doesn’t have a bust measurement. The sizes listed are suggested bust sizes for each of the 4 pattern sizes. For more information and cross-back measurements, see this web page
Shrugs shown are size 39-45 in gray (long sleeve), and 33-38 in nut (mid sleeve) and ocean (cap sleeve), on a 36” bust. This shrug should be loose fitting, so if between sizes or if a longer back length is desired, going up a size is recommended.
Pattern instructions contain a discussion on modifications.
Note: This is an atypically shaped sweater, and good fit requires a loose knit.
If making a yarn substitution, pick one that typically gets 19-20 sts per 4” in stockinette stitch.
