This pattern is available as an individual pdf or as part of the Springy Things Collection. If you previously purchased the Lima Shrug and wish to purchase the Springy Things Collection, $6.50 will automatically be deducted from the collection price.

The Lima Shrug is the first piece in my Springy Things Collection, which also includes Vaguely Reminiscent and the Ayako’s Vest.

The pdf is a two-for-one, one pattern gauged for SweetGeorgia Superwash Sport (shown in blue), and one pattern gauged for Rowan Lima (shown in brown).

Lima is a lacy shrug in a warm yarn for transitional seasons, with 3/4 sleeves. Lima features expanded sizing options, including plus sizing. The lace and ribbing patterns are both written and charted, and a schematic is included. The pattern has been professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error, but if you have questions or believe that you have found an error, please contact me.

sizing & ease
When determining the proper size, treat the collar
circumference at base as if it were a bust circumference
measurement. The shrug is designed to be worn with
approximately 2” / 5 cm positive ease. The sample is worn
with no ease for a very close fit.

needed if your bra size is above a B cup.

construction
Shrug is constructed as a flat rectangle. The work is folded
lengthwise and seamed at each end of the long sides to
form sleeves, with an opening reserved for the collar.
Finally, stitches are picked up along the open edge and the
collar is worked circularly.
