for Berroco 2007
How to achieve the signature Gaughan look while you may be no more than an intermediate knitter (if that)? This shrug is the answer. The overall pattern is a 20-row Dropped Wave Stitch, which eddies and flows just like water around river rocks-- in the love of knitting wrought like nature, there's the Gaughan part. But the overall shape is an unchallenging rectangle, with the collar picked up and knit out from the main piece, setting the collar patterning at right angles to the body. The result is unusual to the eye, relatively uncomplicated to knit, and comforting to wear.
"The opening of this shrug is plenty generous, so bust size is not an issue," explains Gaughan in the pattern. "The length of the collar is more critical to a good fit. I've sized this piece by height. The collar hangs approximately 1 1/2" longer in front on each side for each progressively larger size."
This design originally appeared in Norah Gaughan Vol. 1, published by Berroco.
