Issue 113 of Let's Knit is in the shops in the UK now and I've got a shawl/shrug pattern in this issue. Every party needs a bit of glitz and glam and this shawl has both in abundance! It’s wonderfully elegant and would bring knitted grace to any outfit. Choose from wearing it as a regular shawl or fasten the buttons to create a beautiful shrug.
This shawl is knitted in Debonnaire Shimmer Sock and took two skeins. The shawl is easy to make larger or smaller. You can work fewer or more repeats of Chart B but you may need more yarn if you make it bigger.
The shawl has a half hexagon shape and two buttons are fastened to the bottom of the two 'spines'. Fold the front edges of the shawl over and fasten the buttons to a yarn over hole on the front edge and it transforms it into a shrug.
Shimmer Sock was lovely to knit with. It's a beautiful, luxurious sock (4ply) yarn with sparkles. Perfect for the party season. Debonnaire yarns are hand-dyed by the lovely Erica who I've met at lots of shows. She's got a huge range of hand-dyed luxury yarns and I'm so grateful to her for providing the yarn for this design.
