Error:My Grandmother’s Knitting Book Page 87

The Faggoting Stitch chart should be a 6-st repeat, not an 8-st repeat (the written instructions on page 85 are correct). To see the revised chart, click here.

Chart has been corrected for the Etsy rendition.

This elegant shrug is designed to wrap you in an unbearably soft hug. Infused with Joan’s mother’s 1940s style, and modeled after the bed jackets of that era, it’s equally lovely with a filmy peignoir or rough jeans and cowboy boots. The construction is deceptively simple, and the result is pure heaven.

About the book…..

When most people think of their grandmother’s knitting, they might not immediately see the connection to a modern knitter’s life. But in My Grandmother’s Knitting, Larissa Brown shows us that nothing could be further from the truth.

Many of today’s hippest and most popular knitters found their passion for knitting under the tutelage of their grandmother or another revered family member, and in this book, they share stories and patterns inspired by their memories and their gratitude.

This book is available for preorder on amazon and will be released September 1, 2011.
