a goes-with-everything knit


$5.00

 

The Scuttle Shrug is a SPEEDY knit that will add zing to your winter wardrobe. The back portion of the shrug is knit flat in stockinette stitch. The oversized collar is then picked up around the outer edge of the back in garter stitch. Extra stitches are cast on to make armholes and short rows are used to create a dramatic collar that folds over the shoulders. New to short rows? This is a great project for beginners! It includes a short row photo tutorial.
