Yay, spring is finally here! And I just finished knitting another Patricia shrug, this time for me, with the knit border in the beautiful deep red Illimani Santi. I like shrugs, they are so chic and easy to wear, and are perfect for the cool spring weather. The Patricia shrug has all the elements I love: leaf lace, bobbles, eyelets and texture ribbing. I especially love the pretty leaf pattern on the sleeves. What do you think?
Pretty combo of classic cables and bobbles makes the ear warmer chic and feminine to wear. The bobbles are easy to make and require no turning or backward knitting. A great project to practice cables and bobbles for the adventurous beginners and an enjoyable quick knit for the more advanced.
A versatile layering piece, Patricia is packed with beautiful details: eye-catching lace leaves gracing the three-quarter sleeves; delicate sprinkling of pretty eyelets; and a crochet lace border providing an extra touch of femininity. The shrug is constructed in two separate halves, each knitted sideways from cuff to center back. The two halves are joined together using three-needle bind off. Pattern also includes instructions for a textured rib border as a knit option.
