YARN: Wool Tweed Grey/Dark Grey
HOOK: 6mm (US10)
This yarn is fantastic! I wanted to make something easy which can show the real beauty of this tweed. It’s super soft and warm. It’s a pleasure to wear it. The pattern is an easy shrug I found on Pinterest. You can actually find quite a few of them on Ravelry and they are gorgeous. Another proof that the most simple idea can produce a beautiful piece. I love this shrug!
Some notes on the pattern – I didn’t add the collar and I folded it so the stripes go across. This is just a personal preference as I don’t like sweaters or cardigans to be too long in the back. It always makes me lift them when I am sitting down. Also I thought the collar would add some bulk and extra heaviness to the shrug, so I left it out. Again… personal preference.
Some notes on the yarn – I used a 6mm (US10) hook to crochet the shrug. I found that a bigger size hook added more fluffiness to the yarn. It is such a pleasure working with this yarn – it just goes fast and it’s effortless. The yarn is 50% Wool, 50% Acrylic.
