Bladhm Shrug

My Bladhm Shrug pattern was published in Knit Now, Issue 58, March 2016
Inspired by the Irish version of the Bell X1 song Flame.
This dainty, fiery shrug is knit using Yarn Stories Fine Merino 4ply yarn, it works up very quickly for a pretty cober up for a spring dress.
The shrug is knitted from cuff to cuff, starting with a twisted rib before increasing needle size to work lace. The first sleeve
is knitted in the round before working the centre back flat before rejoining and working the final sleeve in the round. The front edging is picked up along the opening and worked in the round.
