Image of Basic Shrug

Stay comfy and cozy all winter long with this easy to knit shrug. The body of the shrug is knit as a rectangle, and then seamed together to create the armholes.

Basic Shrug

Lion Brand® Tweed Stripes®

GAUGE:

14 1/2 sts + 18 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

PATTERN STITCH
K1, p1 Rib (over even number of sts)
Row 1: *
K1, p1; rep from * to end of row.
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.



SHRUG
Cast on 138 sts.
Work in K1, p1 Rib until piece measures 2 in. (5 cm) from beg.
Change to St st (k on RS, p on WS) and work until piece measures 37 in. (94 cm) from beg.
Work in K1, p1 Rib until piece measures 39 in. (99 cm) from beg.
Bind off.

 

FINISHING
Fold piece in half, bringing cast-on and bound-off edges together, to measure 38 x 19 1/2 in. (96.5 x 49.5 cm). Place markers on each of the 19 1/2 in. (49.5 cm) sides, 7 in. (18 cm) below fold for armholes. Seam each side from marker down to lower edge. Weave in ends.

Basic Shrug Reviewed by Jessica on 2013-10-27 ****
As my first large scale project (I'm still very new to knitting) I found it very nice pattern to complete. I did mine in the mixed berry. It turned out very nice and comfy. A tad baggy fitting even my average build but still very nice to just wear around the house.
