It’s no secret I love Knit Collage yarns and Sister is one of my favorites. This design was inspired when working on the Highland Caplet. Not only is it hooded, it’s longer and has “sleeves” to keep you warm and cozy for the upcoming winter months. The Hooded Highland Shrug is constructed in one piece working back and forth on circular needles. There are no seams with the exception across the top of the hood. We choose to use the Kitchener stitch to create a “seamless” look.
