Stripidy Shrug

a playground for color


$6.00

 

The Stripidy Shrug is knit seamlessly from the top down using a twist on the raglan yoke. With three-quarter length sleeves and an open front, this shrug is easy to throw on or throw in your bag on brisk spring days. Best of all, the bold stripes are fun to knit and easy to customize to your taste. If you want to use my stripe sequence, do it. If you want to make your own stripes and use up some of your stash yarn, check out p.5 for instructions on making changes. Make your Stripidy Shrug one of a kind. I dare you!
