This is a free pattern if you purchase the yarn from your LYS or participating Indie Dyer! There is a list here.

The promotion has been extended due to what is going on around the world. Here is the newsletter I sent to LYS’ and dyers about extending it; I’m not going to walk on eggshells. This is not a political issue; we are in Moral Compass-land.

Hug Shot was supposed to be in honor of International Hug Your Pet Weekend (a made up holiday by Sharon From Security) If you don’t know who that is, you might want to walk away now. Things are not always professional, but they are lighthearted. Sharon does, indeed, allow dogs to participate in this holiday weekend “as long as they don’t act stupid or dig shit up.” With all that is going on in the country, I’ve extended the deadline to redeem codes from June 7 to June 14.

This is a very straightforward shawl and you can smoke, drink, and play Canasta at the same time as knitting it, as Sharon does.

Please please please give one of these local businesses (many doing online sales) your business! Many of them are donating some proceeds of their sales to helping fight racism: Help them to survive the pandemic and be there for us on the other side.

The Pattern
Hug Shot is an asymmetric triangle and has the same specs as Breathe and Hope except it uses a larger needle. The same yarn combinations also work.

Yarn Requirements
Fingering/sock weight yarn. Approx. 380 yards of each color was used, so please note that the requirement is 400 yards each to account for gauge differences.

Please note that I will not be naming the two different yarns that I used from my stash (to keep things fair.) Many dyers and LYS’ have ordered/dyed yarn to mimic this combination.

Color A - Solid
Color B - Speckled/variegated

Size 15” deep by 78” at neck edge.
