A New Shrug
Oceanside Shrug is a new pattern by Alice Dunn Smith, who visits our shop a few times a year.
If you are a fairly new knitter, or someone who has shied away from knitting a fitted garment like a sweater, a shrug may be the bridge you are looking for. It is also a practical garment: useful for a cool summer evening in Maine, a cold air-conditioned room, or for days in the spring and fall. Our shrug is knitted with three skeins of Peace Fleece DK, which currently has most colors on back order. However, since the gauge of this pattern is 5 sts = 1", any heavy dk or worsted weight yarn would work.
