Pearl Shrug

This light, lacy shrug is great for summer nights, when you want a little extra weight around your shoulders but don’t need anything too clingy and warm. The ribbon yarn gives some interest to the eyelet and mesh stitches, particularly because of the pearlescent variations in the nylon half. It is called “Pearl” for the seaside colorway chosen, the fishnet stitch of the main body pattern, for the shimmer of the yarn, and because most of the rows are done in purl.

The rectangular base cloth is folded and seamed to form a three dimensional shape without “shaping”, making it a particularly quick pattern to work and wear this summer. Since both stitch patterns used are reversible, you can wear this shrug either with a flat or a shawl collar– so it is fun, fast, and flexible!

This pattern was originally published in Yarn Forward Magazine #14, August 2009.
