with knitting shrugs.
I've just finished my second one
within the past few months.
(I also have another one on
my needles, almost done.)
This one is knitted in a royal blue. It's from a Berroco pattern called Venus. You can find it here.
I think one of the things I find intriguing about shrugs
is their simplicity of shaping.
This one is knitted from the bottom up,
but I like to put my own spin on patterns,
so I knitted it from sleeve to sleeve.
I did this because of
the nature of my yarn,
which created striping.
I don't normally like horizontal stripes on a garment.
However, vertical stripes can be flattering.
The yarn I used is my own creation of
blended yarns, FUSION.
This colorway is a vibrant blue with
little touches of yellows, reds, greens
and just a touch of metallic.
