There’s nothing cozier and more stylish than a striped ribbed Shrug. Come learn how to knit the Saturday/Sunday Shrug (a wildly popular pattern by Jackie Rose! No swatches needed!
This pattern is a basic canvas for a ribbed shrug knit in the round and you bring the creativity (will you add stripes, mix yarns, or marl colours? It’s up to you!)
Students will learn every step of the pattern including: the seamless Tubular Cast on & Cast Off, how to knit in the round, plan out your stripes, marl or colour changes and the trick to knitting jogless stripes in the round!
Warning: knitting shrugs is highly addictive and they also make wonderful gifts.
Prerequisites: Beginner knitting skills; Student should be able to cast on, knit, purl & cast off.
Notes on Yarn Options:
The pattern calls for either one strand of Worsted or one strand of Bulky weight yarn held together with one strand of Lace weight Mohair, but if someone is sensitive to mohair, suri alpaca would be a nice alternative. Alternatively one could knit holding a single strand of the appropriate weight for the pattern.
The possibilities are endless for these two patterns and the staff at Baaad Anna's are on hand to help with any questions you may have.
(If striping, divide Total Yarn needed by the number of colours to determine how much yarn you will need of each colour)
