Hi S & C Friends,
I am excited to bring you another free pattern using our spectacular Spud & Chloë Sweater. Today I have a shrug pattern for you. In the pattern I included the written instructions for making a women’s size medium. At the end of the pattern I included a “How to make your own custom fit shrug” section. This how-to section has some simple steps you can use to make your own shrug in a different size for yourself or a child size shrug! With a few quick measurements you will be on your way.
This simple pattern is an easy one to customize, make the sleeves longer or shorter, leave out the ruching and work in straight stockinette, use a different border, change the color, change the size, make one for a little one in your life, maybe stripes or color blocks…. the sky is the limit.
Here is some information you might like to know:
Size: Written in full for an women’s adult size medium with “how-to” steps to create your own sizes at the end.
Yarn: Spud & Chloë Sweater (55% superwash wool, 45% organic cotton; 100 grams/160 yards), 3 hanks in Belugs #7521 to make the size medium
Note: Yarn amounts will vary with any size changes to the pattern.
Needles: US size 7 sixteen-inch circular needles or size to obtain gauge
Gauge: 5 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch
I love this quick project. It can be dressed up or down.
It is a really just a long tube with an opening in the middle.
I have included my design sketch schematic here so you can see how the measurements are broken down for the size medium.
Have fun with your shrugs! I can’t wait to see them and to see which colors in Sweater you choose.
