This is a versatile shrug that can be made up in a variety of yarns.
It was originally designed for BC Garn’s Jaipur silk Fino which is a lace weight yarn. It is delicate and lacy in this yarn. It takes two 50gm cones of the silk in the main colour plus one optional cone in a second colour for the trim.
It also looks good made up in BC Garn’s Allino, a linen/cotton yarn. Five 50gm balls of the main colour plus one ball of contrast colour are needed for this version.
