Girl’s Best Friend Shrug and Wrap
Shrug or Wrap, the choice is yours.
The party season is just about here.
All those pretty tops and dresses, with strappy or strapless shoulders look wonderful. But sometimes we just want a little something to keep the chill off, but still look glamorous.
So, I have designed Girl’s Best Friend shrug or wrap.
The pattern is quite simple, easy enough for a beginner, and fabulous as a handmade gift for girlfriends, aunties or daughters.
The design is made up of different diamond shapes, created with very simple stitches.
Either item is made in rows, and the edging or border is added at the end.
I used Stylecraft Cabaret DK, in colour Ocean, which is a gorgeous, soft yarn, with little sparkles running through it. Perfect for party season.
I used a 4.5mm hook as I wanted a slightly looser tension to create a more open design to the stitches.
