626 A Snug Shrug
A quick little Top Down shrug to cover up bare shoulders on a cool evening or in air conditioning.
We have created the pattern with two yarn options. You can use 2 strands of fingering weight yarn held together throughout to give you a tweedy effect (or not, if you use two strands of the same colour!) and a thicker yarn which makes this a quick knit project (black & blue sample). We used one strand of a semi-solid/hand-painted (the blue) and one strand of a solid (black with a fleck of silver). This gives you a chance to use some of the gorgeous coloured fingering available in a garment for yourself.
You can also use a single strand of yarn in a Heavy Worsted/Aran weight which will also give you a lovely shrug in no time at all (winter white sample). We used a boucle for a textured effect but there are lots of yarns you can experiment with (you can always use another shrug right?).
Note: The boucle yarn used in the white sample has a "ball band/yarn band tension" of 18sts on a 5mm/US8 needle. We preferred it at a little looser tension so used the 6.5mm/US10.5 needle to obtain 14sts per 4 inches/10cm.
