Silver Moon Shrug

You will wrap yourself in an air of mystery when you slip on this gorgeous Silver Moon Shrug. Throw this light sweater on over your outfit whenever you feel a chill for instant glamor and warmth. Knit in two pieces and seamed down the middle, this is a great project for knitters interested in tackling sweaters. This shrug knits up fairly quick, making it a great project for knitters who don't want to tackle a full sweater.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I had to read the instructions a couple times to see what chain 5 means but I think I got it. Different. I like the shaping of this shrug though and I usually am not a fan of shrugs since many of them are too high in the back. This pattern looks as if it will fall a little below the arms which I prefer. It should knit up quickly and I like the yarn used. Thank you.

I really love the way the self striping yarn blends so well. I have never tried patons lace yarn and after seeing this shrug it makes me want to order some right now. I also really like the shrug and it could be dressed up or down. Normally ii would want to change the colors of a garment I would wear but, I really do love the way the color turned out.

I am stuck on the shaping of the front, particularly after "Place marker (bring st back to left hand needle K1) 5 times - Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left hand needle. K 4 tog." If this means I have to knit 4 of the chain sts tog, how do I progress? Pls show a photo of this part as I have tried to work it out for last 4 weeks.

I have knitted this pattern twice. I love this pattern. My granddaughter has one and so do I. The pattern is not for begginers as it is a bit confusing in places

Could you please tell me what to do with all those remaining stitches when shaping the front. Really appreciate it. Very confused. Thanks

Hi atbuck4363336, my understanding of the pattern is in the sections "Shape Front" you work with progressively shorter rows. When you get down to the required number of stitches (for medium, 162) being worked, you then purl across all the stitches (for medium, all 177). You then start working with short rows again, and once you reach the required number, you purl across all the stitches again. Hope this helps!

You follow the pattern exactly all stitches will be worked back into the pattern until you are instructed to cast off. With short row shaping you are only leaving stitches unworked temporarily until the actual shaping is done.

This pretty shrug is very suitable for an evening out or for a Summer wedding. Made with Paton's Lace part of its charm comes from the mohair halo which gives it a soft romantic feel. It looks like a straight forward knitting but should be attempted by people with a little experience.

morning when do you cast off unworked sts?

You follow the pattern exactly as written, with short row shaping unworked stitches are only temporary until the shaping is finished and all stitches are incorporated back into the pattern until article is complete and you are instructed to cast off the stitches. Hope this helps.

in the final paragraph titled Finishing it states "See Diagram". What diagram? I would love to make this but would like to see the diagram first.

Hey there dctcmail! Please click the "Shrug Construction Chart," a link near the middle of the pattern. That is the diagram. Happy knitting!

Thanks, this one is my planned "next project" although I may try to knit it from one side to the next rather than in two pieces. I guess I will see how it goes.

I had been trying to figure out how to finish this off and finally found the link. I love how it is looking so much like the picture. I'm almost finished with it.
