Rockefeller Center Skating Shrug
This luxurious sweater shrug was inspired by the ice skaters at Rockefeller Center at Christmastime; I love watching skaters holding hands and whizzing around the rink beneath the giant, light-studded tree!
Bright Dk Weight Cashmere is transformed into a cozy skating shrug that features ultra-soft and lofty Thermal Ribbed sleeves, collar, and edging, with a wrap-over front for extra warmth, and rhinestone buttons for a bit of holiday sparkle… A perfect little cardigan for ice skating, skiing, or throwing on over your favorite tank or long sleeved shirt, this sweet shrug is also a fantastic accent to wear with formal holiday dresses. The Rockefeller Center Shrug will work well in almost any wool/silk, Merino, or luxurious cashmere; try Great Northern Yarns mink/cashmere for an especially scrumptious knit —smaller yardage makes this a great project for luxury yarn use!
Knit from the top down, the shrug is seamlessly made… the collar and bottom band are knit right onto the body, so no sewing is required. Rockefeller Center has a modern silhouette that is very clean, and the shaping can be made more or less A-line as you desire. Simple enough to be knit in solid, semi-solid, or handpainted colorways, you will want to knit this again and again…cozy up to this decadent little shrug!
