The Love Shrug Knitting Pattern
Expanding upon the Simple Knit Shrug, I designed a new pattern that will literarily have you wearing your heart on your sleeve! I incorporate a really cool and easier than you think heart motif from one end to the other. This shrug is knit with 100% washable merino wool Swish DK from KnitPicks, but you could use any DK or worsted weight yarn just be sure to check your gauge first and make any adjustments as needed.
What I used:
- 6 skeins KnitPicks Swish DK Yarn in any color. Lots to choose from!
- Size 8 US circular needles
- Abacus Bracelet to count rows.
Here is a 1 minute video of the Love Shrug Debut!
The pattern instructions are for S, M or L. Keep in mind it’s not a snug shrug. I’m actually wearing the Medium size. I love that the sleeves are extra long and loose. It’s perfect for wearing over a t-shirt, and so super soft and warm.
The pattern can be purchased now through my Ravelry or Etsy store.
I hope you’ll give it a try!
Once you have the pattern you can use this tutorial to help you through the Heart Motif 🙂 I use my Abacus Bracelet to count each row.
