Here is a simple shrug pattern, originally designed to be knit with hand-dyed yarn—but you can use any similar commercially dyed yarn if you don’t feel like dyeing your own. This simple shrug is a perfect way to create a garment without increasing or decreasing. It is constructed from a rectangle knitted lengthwise and seamed to make sleeves. Easy stitches and no-fuss construction means you can make this in a weekend! Optional dyeing instructions are included.

Finished Size: 48" long and 8" wide.

Yarn: About 400 yds worsted weight (#4 medium) yarn. If you intend to dye the yarn first, make sure the yarn is dyeable. For the hand-dyed shrug pictured, we used 400 yds (61 D2 oz.) Sabie Kid Mohair bouclé, 985 yds/lb, available from Louet Sales.

Needles: Size 9 (5.5 mm): 32" circular (cir).

Skill level: Beginner.

I can't wait to make this one. I don't think I'll dye the yarn I have picked out--it is a cashmere/mink blend that I found on ebay of all places (just put cashmere and mink in the search box--it is sooo light and soft, and no harm done to either animal! Go Vegan-ism!). #9 needles are perfect for it too!
