Shrug & More

Shrug+MorebyMartinaBehm 3

Easy to knit, multifunctional and interesting to look at – that’s the kind of knitting project that I am most fond of these days! Shrug & More was designed as a garter stitch shrug, but the arm openings are intentionally big enough to fit over your head – which creates endless possibilities to wear!

The short-row shaping of the collar and one two-tone sleeve make it an interesting piece of your wardrobe. The yarn I chose is a certified organic ultrasoft merino which is a true pleasure to have next to your skin.

200 g of the main color plus 100 g of the contrast color will be sufficient for a shrug up to ca. size L. For larger sizes please have 300 g of the main color ready. The size of the armholes + total length as well as the width across the shoulders can be adapted to the size of the recipient during the knitting.
