This lacy jacket fits nearly everyone. Knitting is wonderfully simple.
The coral sample was knitted on 76
pegs on each of the Kiss Looms 77
peg sides, set up for double knitting and using what is
probably Bernat Satin yarn. I can’t be certain because I
bought it in a bargain bag. It is the
first size given. Green sample was knitted on all 84 pegs of a KB old style knitting board using Stitch Nation Bamboo Ewe yarn from Coats and Clark and is the 2nd size. This yarn is discontinued but sometimes still available. Light brown sample is knitted on the Noble Knitter using all 100 pegs using Deborah Norville Everyday Worsted and is the 4th size. Cottage Loom swatches and settings are given on page 3. Fine, small and regular gauge Cottage Looms will work. Any soft #4 weight yarn may be used. The yarn absolutely must be soft to get an attractive drape.

For the 5 sizes, they are 7684, 92, 100, 108 to make the shrug in a single piece. If you don’t have enough pegs, you need not buy
another loom, unless you need a good excuse to do so. In that
case, let it be known by all that you definitely need another loom.
All sizes may be knitted on 48 pegs if need be by means of adding side panels. In this case, the center 48 stitch panel will be
the center of the shrug for all sizes and will be about 16” wide.
