SKILL LEVEL:  Easy (Level 2)

SIZE: One Size

Finished Length About 46 in. (117 cm) from cuff to cuff
Finished Width About 22 in. (56 cm)



CORRECTIONS: (applied Nov 13, 2013)
Sleeve Ruffles
The B yarn used for the ruffles is constructed like a tube.
Cut a 20 in. (51 cm) length of B. Smooth out the length of B, as though smoothing a piece of fabric to open the fabric of the yarn slightly.
With sewing needle and thread, whipstitch both cut ends of the length of B to secure the raw edges. Fold the piece length of B in half lengthwise and with sewing needle and thread, sew a running st along the folded edge. Pull the sewing thread to make gathers and draw piece up until it measures same as wrist edge. This will begin to gather the length of B. Continue to pull the sewing thread to gather the length of B until it measures about the same size as the lower edge of the sleeve.
The above is only a summary of corrections; the corrected pattern text is below (if free) or shipped upon completion of order (if purchased)

Openwork Knit Shrug

Lion Brand® Homespun®Thick & Quick® - Imagine

GAUGE:

9 sts + 16 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in Pattern st with A.

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:

M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal strand lying between needles and placing it onto the left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop - 1 st increased.

FINISHING

Sleeve Ruffles
The B yarn used for the ruffles is constructed like a tube.
Cut a 20 in. (51 cm) length of B. Smooth out the length of B, as though smoothing a piece of fabric to open the fabric of the yarn slightly.
With sewing needle and thread, whipstitch both cut ends of the length of B to secure the raw edges. Fold the length of B in half lengthwise and with sewing needle and thread, sew a running st along the folded edge. Pull the sewing thread. This will begin to gather the length of B. Continue to pull the sewing thread to gather the length of B until it measures about the same size as the lower edge of the sleeve.
Sew ruffle to sleeve. Rep on opposite sleeve.
