wrap top/shrug with textured detail
This pattern was designed especially for this yarn - the garter rib shows off the lovely sheen of the silk and highlights your bustline! Inspiration for this garment shape came from 18th century fashion.

Size:
Bust 34 (36, 38, 40, 42, 46, 48, 50, 52, 54)

Pattern Notes:
Garter Rib: RS- K1, P1 to end
WS - P all stitches

This garment is constructed as a top-down raglan, with minimal seaming. **Note: please be understanding. This is the first pattern Iíve attempted to size!

  • How to make a shrug. Hew - Step 1
    Step 1

    Pattern:
    Cast on 96 (102, 114, 128, 132, 146, 150, 168, 168, 182, 182) sts.
    Knit across 6 (6, 8, 10, 12, 12, 14, 16, 16, 18, 18) place stitch marker, knit 12 (12, 16, 18, 18, 22, 22, 26, 26, 28, 28) place marker, knit 60 (66, 66, 72, 72, 78, 78, 84, 84, 90, 90) place marker, knit 12 (12, 16, 18, 18, 22, 22, 26, 28, 28) place marker.
    Arms are now marked for raglan increases.
    From now on, do raglan increases in the manner written below until stitches for back number 82 (88, 90, 94, 96, 98, 98, 100, 100):
    
    Raglan increases:
    Knit across 6 (6, 8, 10, 12, 12, 14, 16, 16, 18, 18), slip the marker, increase 1, knit across arm stitches until one stitch before marker, increase 1, slip the marker, increase 1, knit across back stitches until 1 stitch before marker, increase 1, slip the marker, increase 1, knit across arm until one stitch before marker, increase 1, slip the marker, knit to the end.

    When you have the number of stitches for the back, continue increasing for the arms (but not for the back!) until they fit comfortably around your upper arm.
    When the arms fit around your upper arm:
    Knit along front 6 (6, 8, 10, 12, 12, 14, 16, 16, 18, 18), slip the marker, cast off all arm stitches, take off second marker, knit across back, slip marker, cast off all arm stitches, take off second marker, knit until the end.

    Step 2

    Increasing for bust:

    Right Side Rows: Knit 1, increase 1, knit across all stitches until 2 stitches from the end, increase 1, knit 1.
    Wrong Side Rows: Purl.

    Work in this manner until number of stitches for front are 22 (22, 32, 32, 44, 44, 56, 56, 66, 66, 78).
    ***KEEP TRYING ON THE GARMENT to see how far itís coming down your bust. When you put the shrug on and it comes down 1 inch below your bust, begin the ties.

    Step 3

    Ties:
    With the RS facing, cast on 200 (206, 212, 224, 224, 230, 236, 247, 247, 260, 260). Work garter rib across to end. Cast on 100 (103, 106, 112, 112, 115, 118, 121, 121, 124, 124).

    From this point on, work garter rib, decreasing one stitch at the end of every row.
    When the ties are 1 (1, 1, 1.5, 1.5, 1.5, 2, 2, 2, 2) inches wide, cast off all stitches.

    Neckline:
    Work entire neckline in garter rib.
    Pick up 20 (20, 26, 26, 32, 32, 38, 38, 44, 44) along top of left tie.

    Each RS row, pick up one stitch from edge of neckline and knit it together with first stitch of garter rib.
    Work in this manner all the way around the edge of the neckline until you get to the right tie.
    Finish off by grafting/Kitchener stitching the garter rib neckline to the top of the right tie.
