Dusty Rose Cardi Shrug


Dusty Rose Cardi Shrug


It stays on your shoulders like a cardigan, yet it's cropped and hangs open like a shrug. The Dusty Rose Cardi Shrug has the best of both worlds. This knit cardigan pattern is a great summer piece to have in your closet. Because there are no buttons and it is a one-piece construction, the Dusty Rose Cardi Shrug is a fast, easy knit project. We love the warm, purplish brown featured in the picture, but feel free to use any other DK weight yarn.

This shrug is worked in stockinette stitch, except for the hems (the first and last four rows, at the neck and at the bottom edge) and the first and last three stitches of each row, which are all in garter stitch. It is also a very casual shrug as it does not have any buttons and it is made all in one piece.

Love this pattern, I made it a few year ago, lost pattern and Yeahhh!!!just found it here! Will knit another maybe more, I used a cotton dk and the drape is amazing, Thank you

Lovely shrug. It is simple yet elegant. Knit it up in a yarn with a bit of shimmer and it will be good for an evening outfit. This is the perfect addition to an outfit to add a bit of warmth. Sometimes you just need an extra layer around the shoulders. It does not take up much yarn and it should knit up quickly, It would make a nice gift as well. Thank you.

This nice little shrug is perfect to wear in an over air conditioned office this summer. It provides just enough warmth around your shoulders to make you comfortable while sitting at your desk. Though it does not have a button, you could easily add a loop and button closure after finishing the cardigan or do as the author suggests and close it with a nice costume jewelry brooch.
