Wrap Artist Shrug

Lion Brand® Lion® Bouclé - Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

8.75 sts + 12 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in Rev St st (p on RS, k on WS) with MC on larger needle. 26 sts + 26 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in K 1, P 1 Rib with CC on smaller needles, unstretched. 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:

Kitchener Stitch (Grafting) Holding the 2 needles parallel with right sides of fabric together, thread a large-eyed, blunt needle with one of the yarn ends and work as follows:

Insert needle as if to purl into first stitch on front piece. Insert needle as if to knit into first stitch on back piece. Then follow steps 1-4 as outlined below. 1) Insert needle as if to knit through first st on front needle and let the st drop from needle. 2) Insert needle into 2nd st on front needle as if to purl and pull the yarn through, leaving st on the needle. 3) Insert needle into first st on back needle as if to purl and let it drop from the needle, then 4) insert it as if to knit through 2nd st on back needle and pull the yarn through, leaving st on needle. Repeat steps 1-4 until all sts are gone. When finished, adjust tension as necessary. Weave in ends.

NOTES:

This garment is constructed as a tube which is left open at the cast on edge. At the top of the tube, sleeves are attached, and the remaining stitches are grafted closed. (There is no opening at the top of the tube, except at the wrist ends of the Sleeves.) The Scarf is attached along the cast on edge. The 32 sts which are left free at the cast on form the back of the neck. Garment is worn by putting arms through cast on opening and then into each Sleeve. Body of garment will flow around your body. Scarf can be tied as desired.


BODY

With MC and larger needle, loosely cast on 100 sts. Place marker and join, being careful not to twist. Place safety pins for Scarf placement as follows: Place pin in cast on row, p 32, place pin in cast on row, p to end of round. Continue even in Rev St st until piece measures 9 inches [23 cm] from beg.

Armhole Bind Off P 26, bind off next 24 sts, p 26 (includes st remaining on right needle after bind off), bind off next 24 sts. Place both sets of 26 sts on holders.

SLEEVES

With CC and smaller needles, cast on 45 sts. Work 3 inches [7.5 cm] in K 1, P 1 Rib. Work incs 1 st from edge, incorporating sts into Rib; inc 1 st each end every 6th row 14 times – 73 sts. Work even until piece measures 17 inches [43 cm] from beg. Bind off all sts loosely in pattern.

SCARF

With MC and larger needle, cast on 12 sts. Work even in Garter st (k every row) until piece measures 9 inches [23 cm] from beg. Inc 1 st each end of next row, then every 6th row 6 times total – 24 sts. Work even in Garter st until piece measures 51 inches [129.5 cm]. Dec 1 st each end of next row, then every 6th row 6 times total – 12 sts. Work even in Garter st until piece measures 69 inches [175.5 cm] from beg. Bind off all sts.

FINISHING

Sew Sleeves to bound off armhole sts on Body. Sew Sleeve seams. (For optional thumb opening, keep 1½ inches [4 cm] of seam open starting 2 inches [5 cm] from beg.) With RS together, graft 2 sets of sts on holders together to form back of Shrug. Keeping 18 inches [45.5 cm] free at each end of Scarf, sew to cast on edge of Body, leaving 32 sts between pins free.
