Sparkling Shrug

Lion Brand® Vanna's Sequins


24 sts = 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


K1, p1 Rib (over an 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.


1. Shrug is worked as a rectangle, then folded and seamed.
2. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts. Work back and forth in rows on circular needle as if working on straight needles.

Cast on 216 sts. 
Work in K1, p1 Rib until piece measures 2 1/2 in. (6.5 cm) from beg. 
Change to St st (k on RS, p on WS) and work until piece measures 23 1/2 in. (59.5 cm) from beg. 
Work in K1, p1 Rib until piece measures 26 in. (66 cm) from beg.

Sparkling Shrug Reviewed by Kathleen Shinabery Caldwell on 2014-12-07 *
I think this is an adorable pattern, but have one huge problem: It takes six skeins of yarn, not five! My gauge is right on and it became apparent I wouldn't have enough yarn to complete the project when I was 20" from the beginning. I'm keeping my fingers crossed I'll have enough to get me to the ribbing where I plan to attach the new ball of yarn I'm having to order after I'm done writing this review. Hopefully, the change in the dye lot won't be too noticeable. Greatest disappointment will be if I currently lack sufficient yarn to get to this point. It's not likely this project will look good with a different dye lot attached before the ribbing...I'm sure I'll have to tear out all my work as a result. I'm not a happy camper today!!
