A very cozy vest-ish shrug, made to celebrate the University District Street Fair (2011). The original was made with Plymouth Trabajos del Peru, a heavy-worsted-weight yarn that knits to a bulky gauge quite nicely. It is so soft and warm!
I’ve made a second one with Plymouth Jeannee Chunky for when the weather warms up a little bit.

The sizing is awkward, yes. The measurement is taken across the back of the piece. Because of the stretchy ribbing and the fact that the “back” also makes a little bit of a cap sleeve, the size is very flexible, but difficult to define. I give the measurement as a guideline.

A French translation is now available, with thanks to Alpag.
