Two basic shapes form the construction of this sleeveless shrug. A touch of simple knitting origami and three easy-sewn seams transform the fabric into a 3-dimensional garment.
Created with two contrasting yarns, this unique stitch causes one color to ‘peek’ out through the open mesh window-pane structure, resulting in a subtle and sophisticated two-tone effect.
Have fun choosing the highlight color - use odds and ends from your stash, or perhaps that wild hand-dyed skein you just can’t quite decide what to do with…
Versatility is at the core of my designs and this shrug proves to be no exception. Wear it over a camisole when the over zealous air conditioning strikes in summer, and team it with long sleeves during the colder months.
