Shrug Designed with
Pattern was completed in August 2006
Entrelac is a knitting technique that results in a very interesting fabric of interconnecting squares.
In this variation of the technique, a lace design has been inserted into alternating rows of squares.
The basic design of this shrug starts by creating a ribbed cuff, which starts with half the number of stitches
that will be worked in the bulk of the body of the shrug. Stitches are added in each set of Entrelac squares until
the desired number of stitches have been created the make the lace inserts in the Entrelac work.
The end of the work reverses the process and decreases stitches in the squares until the desired number
of stitches are reached for making the ending cuff. The shrug is then worn by inserting the wrists into the cuffs
and wearing the shrug across the shoulders.
The pictured sample was made from six ounces of lace weight merino wool/angora handspun yarn,
Both double point and straight or circular needles are needed.
The cuff is worked on American Size 2 double point needles to make it tighter.
The body of the shrug is worked on American Size 3 either straight or circular needles
