Open Air Shrug

Lion Brand® Kitchen Cotton

GAUGE:

15 dc + 7 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) with smaller hook.
1 pattern repeat (from 'peak' to 'peak' of Row 2) = about 3 1/2 in. (9 cm) over st pattern for Body, with larger 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:

CL (3-dc cluster) Yarn over, insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook, (yarn over, insert hook in same st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice, yarn over and draw through all 4 loops on hook.

NOTES:

1. Shrug is worked in one piece from sleeve to sleeve.
2. Body of Shrug is worked with a larger hook than the sleeves to create a looser fabric.
3. After sleeves are seamed, edging is worked in rnds around front opening. Edging is worked with 2 strands of yarn held together.
4. Sleeves and body are worked the same for both sizes. Additional sts are worked around front opening of edging of Size 1X-2X to create a larger front opening.

Open Air Shrug Reviewed by Julie McAleenan on 2014-09-11 *****
I thought the picture looked lovely and certainly looked more difficult than a beginner project, but to my surprise it worked up very quickly and was very simple to make - the end result is gorgeous - I think a few of my friends will get one for Christmas!
