muse shrug by petra breakstone

marni & petraI met the lovely Petra Breakstone of Yarnz2Go.com at the grand opening of West 7th Wool in Fort Worth. There she was, smiling and eagerly sharing her work with all of us knitting enthusiasts. So I dove into her wares, happily trying on piece after piece. This is the the little number that caught my eye and so became my next project.

The muse shrug is constructed of a straight stockinette stitch with a border of the wicker stitch. The shrug is versatile and can be work with the border as a collar, or upside down as the bottom edge.  You can also wear the shrug as a cowl around your neck!

  1. It sure was a lovely day and time we had at the grand opening of W7W a few weeks back! Your Muse shrug turned out absolutely lovely and I can’t wait to get together again!

    I wish to make “simple knit shrug pattern” but cannot get the gauge 8 stitches to 4inches. Is this a mistake?
