I am sure you will be surprised how easy is it to make such beautiful cardigan or shrug. It is working up pretty quickly as well.
Skill level - easy
This cardigan is made almost without seams! You will have to make only two side seams.
The pattern is written for size X-Small with changes for Small, Medium, Large in …
Shown in size Small.
Finished length: for sizes XS and S – 54cm or 21 ¼ inches, for size M and L – 65cm or 25 ½ inches
Finished back: with such kind of shrug it is most important that it fits well your back. Take measurement of your back in the widest place (it is just below the shoulders) and see which size you should make.
14 ¼, 15 ¾, 17 ¼, 18 ¾inches or 35.5 39.5, 43, 47cm wide
If no size is fitting you and you need it bigger, you can use worsted weight yarn instead of DK weight yarn. But in this case I don’t provide quantity of the yarn needed.
• 1600yards 1900, 2200, 2500 of DK- weight yarn (I used 25% Alpaca, 25% Acrylic, 50% Merino Wool)
• crochet hook 4mm G, or size needed to obtain gauge.
Save your time and check the gauge before you start!
