When a member of Lisa Daehlin's knitting group showed her the strange tendency of a lace pattern to bias, Lisa knew she was onto something good. Lisa has allowed the tilt of the fabric to add flair to the floaty sleeves of this otherwise straightforward shrug. To make the sleeves symmetrical, shes worked the shrug in two pieces, each knitted from the cuff to the center back, then grafted together.
Finished Size: Each sleeve 26 1/2" (67.5 cm) long from cuff to center back, 12 1/2" (31.5 cm) wide at cuff, and 17" (43 cm) wide at center back, before seaming.
Yarn: Mission Falls 1824 Cotton (100% cotton; 84 yd [77 m]/ 50 g): #402 sea, 7 skeins. Yarn distributed by Unique Kolours.
Yarn weight: #4 - Medium
Gauge: 18 sts and 23 rows
Needles: Size 8 (5 mm). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
Notions: Coilless safety pins; stitch holder; tapestry needle.
