I'm continuing to evolve and tweak this favourite shrug design of mine. The intended recipient for this one is a regularly-sized small to medium woman, for whom my larger versions of this design ("medium to extra large") might be too engulfing.
Thick acrylic/wool blend yarns in pale grey, tweedy grey/beige and nubbly grey/beige are worked alongside narrow grey strands and a mohair blend. The relaxed chunky knit stitches have a laxity that stretches at the back to jacket length; the shawl collar could be pinned with a shawl pin in front on smaller women or left to hang relaxed in front of the shoulders. You'll see from the photos that it is a reversible garment with two alternate textures facing outward (first three photos vs. last two photos)
The chunky stitches make this a malleable garment with a somewhat stretchy shape. If you like precision, you might not enjoy these latest knit-works of mine which focus on organic shapes which I create by using a tape measure rather than a specific pattern. Their emphasis on texture and colour-play cast them into the realm of art-wear. When you're not wearing it---it would be stunning on your wall as an accent piece---just insert a pole through the sleeves and hang.
PLEASE NOTE: I (Lynn) do not accept custom requests (I can't keep up with my own whims plus I've made a lifestyle decision to avoid deadlines :=)), so what you see listed is all that is currently available, though I will be adding new items as I create them.
Measurements are approximate due to the inherent stretch in this chunky knit fabric. The following dimensions were made with the garment laying flat doubled over (i.e. supported on a flat surface with minimal stretching).
Cuff edge to cuff edge: 55" (140 cm)
Cuff width 6"/15 cm. (12"/30.5 cm. around) and arm width:8" (20.5 cm.) i.e. 16" (40.5 cm.) around
Width: 25" ( 63.5 cm.) from underarm to underarm when laid flat doubled over. Circumference at chest level -i.e. from edge of front rib band around back to edge of opposing front rib band--- is 39"/99 cm. (i.e. width plus twice distance from underarms to edge of rib band)---or only 34"/86.5 cm. if the collar is turned back
Height: 15" (38 cm.) when laid flat doubled over --including 5"/12.5 cm. band of knit rib which circles the shrug forming both shawl collar and waistband. Hence depth at mid back is twice this height---i.e. 30" (76 cm.) with the collar standing up.
Due to the wool/mohair components mixed in with the synthetic yarns, this item should be washed by hand, please, using mild soap, in lukewarm water and then rinsing and squeezing gently between cupped hands or against the edge of the sink (please do not wring). Remove excess moisture by rolling in a fluffy towel, then lay flat to dry away from direct heat.

This one is just as nice... better actually b/c I love the colors so much more then the more expensive one I saw. A wonderful seller... thank you, I will treasure my hand made shrug for yrs to come like it was made especially for me.
