Sunshine Lace Shrug
All proceeds from the sale of this pattern will be donated to Fanm pou Fanm (Women for Women)’s Haiti Crochet Project!
Recently, a friend of mine wore her triangular lace shawl with the ends tied together on her back. I loved the look!
Needless to say, my friend is tiny and thus a regular size shawl will work for her. But, if you are woman sized, like me, the shawl would have to be rather large. But, I really liked the concept of wearing a lace shawl in that manner. That is how I came up with the idea for this lace shrug.
If you are an intermediate knitter, you should be able to easily work this shrug. The shrug is knit in all lace, BUT it is an easy lace pattern that has a 10 stitch repeat. As long as you use stitch markers to mark the repeats, you will be fine.
Stitches Used: k2tog, YO, SSK, K, P
XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL-4XL) - Chest size is not so critical for deciding what size to knit. Measurement across the back is important. I will post more of this sizing information with CLue 1.
Any worsted or aran weight summer type yarn with a posted gauge of 18 sts/4” –
For Example: Cascade Yarns Pima Tencel, Cascade Yarns Pima Silk, Knit Picks Shine Worsted, Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece, Knitting Fever King Tut, Hobby Lobby I love this Cotton, Debbie Bliss Pure Cotton - all these yarns will work well.
