Circular Shrug

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

For smallest size: 4 V-sts (or 12 sts) = 3 in. (7.5 cm) + 8 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over V-st pattern with smallest hook;
For middle size: 5 V-sts (or 15 sts) + 7 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over V-st pattern with middle-sized hook;
For largest size: 6 V-sts (or 18 sts) = 5 1/4 in. (13.5 cm) + 6 1/2 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over V-st pattern with largest hook.

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:

V-st (V-stitch) (Dc, ch 1, dc) in indicated st or sp.
V-st-INC (V-stitch increase) (Dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc) in indicated st or sp.

NOTES:

1. Shrug is worked in two pieces. Each piece forms half of the collar and half of the body.
2. Each half is worked back and forth in rows in a semi-circle shape, from the armholes outwards.
3. The pieces are overlapped at the back, and optionally at the front. The Shrug is meant to be worn with a variable amount of overlap at the front, allowing the Shrug to fit a range of sizes.
4. Use a hook that allows you to achieve the gauge specified for the size you wish to make.
5. Increases are achieved in two different ways; 1) a V-st-INC is worked into a ch-1 sp, 2) a V-st is worked into the sp between V-sts. When instructed to work a V-st in the sp between V-sts, work into the sp between the V-st just worked and the next V-st.
6. Stitch markers are used to separate the body sts and the collar sts. All body shaping increases are worked in the center section, and all collar increases are worked in the collar section. You may wish to use different color markers for the body markers and collar marker. Move markers up as work progresses.

Circular Shrug Reviewed by Carolyn Fish on 2012-10-27 ****
Loved making this shrug,however I would call it a sweater. The Instruction for putting it together leaves alot to be desired,but I finally got it. The next time I make it I will make the sleeves longer.
