Need a weekend project? Here it is…get 5 skeins of Blue Sky Multi Cotton…take your US 10.5 needles and cast on 69 stitches…the rest is in the directions. This shrug can be made out of any lofty worsted weight yarn. I have made it out of Claudia Handpaints Merino 55 which is a merino/silk blend with 165 yards per skein. I used the same size needle and only 3 skeins. Now that fall is here, the new Maxima yarn from Manos or Malabrigo Worsted would work perfectly. It is such a versatile piece of clothing.
ps - the first two photos are using Blue Sky and the last three are using Claudia Handpaints.
