Ruffle Shrug

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®


22 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in K2, p2 rib.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.

Cast on 132 sts.
Row 1: *K2, p2; rep from * across.
Rep Row 1 until piece measures 24 in. (61 cm) from beginning. Bind off.

Fold piece in half (bringing side edges together) to form an 12 x 24 in. (30.5 x 61 cm) rectangle.
Leaving 7 in. (18 cm) below fold open for armhole, seam one 12 in. (30.5 cm) open side for 5 in. (12.5 cm). Rep to seam other 12 in. (30.5 cm) open side.
From RS, pick up and knit 284 sts evenly spaced along the edge of the open side opposite fold.
Join, being careful not to twist. Place marker for beg of rnd.
Rnd 1: *K1, k into front and then back of next st; rep from * around – 426 sts.
Next rnd: *K3, p3; rep from * around.
Rep last rnd until Ruffle measures about 1 1/2 in. (3.8 cm). Bind off. Weave in ends.

Ruffle Shrug Reviewed by Carol Zalek on 2013-07-15 *****
Love this pattern! Finished one and started another - but why not offer a larger size. It's easy enough for me to calculate the increased stitches and inches I need, but not everyone can/likes to do that.
