Strawberry-picking Shrug Needlework Patterns

Regular price $6.50 $0.00

This shrug is lacy and light enough for Emma to wear picking strawberries in the summer sun, yet cozy and proper enough to meet her father's satisfaction. This is a perfect project for the knitter who wishes to dip a needle into the exciting waters of knitted lace, as strawberry lace is worked on both sides of the fabric. The strawberry lace can be extended for a larger size or deeper shrug. The garter-stitch hems ensure no rolling and a clean edge. Finished Size: 121/4 (131/2, 141/2, 153/4, 163/4, 18, 191/4)" at center back (as well as around upper arm) and 19 (203/4, 223/4, 243/4, 263/4, 281/2, 301/2)" long from cuff to cuff.
