Harvest Shrug

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

16 sts + 22 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS).

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

Row 1:
*K1, p1; rep from * to across.
Row 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
Rep Row 2 for K1, p1 Rib.

NOTES:

Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of sts. Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.

Reviewed by Shari on 2013-11-03 *****
Just finished this in Vanna's choice grey marble. It was a fast knit, I used a moss stitch for the edging instead of the rib. It is beautiful! I only needed 6 balls of yarn my measurements were spot on so I'm not sure if the moss stitch effected the amount of yarn needed. To get the curl out of the sleeves and the pocket like drape out of the derrière use steam through a towel. I also found that just wearing it helped with the back drape.As a previous user noted make sure your seams are clean because they show in the front of the sweater. Worth the time!
