Loosely Woven Shrug and Wrist-warmers

Another design for Thomas Kvist Yarns, I have just finished. A Japanese inspired shrug with wrist-warmers that can be tied on with a cord, so that they stay up. The shrug can be worn several different ways with a shawl pin. It can be folded into a Japanese triangle at the front and fastened, or as a traditional shrug. Knitted in Amoretto, a lovely soft and warm mixture of 45 % alpaca and 50% cotton with a small percentage of polyamide 5%, 100 g/3.5 oz hank, 250 m/273 yds. Tension/guage is 27 sts in pattern equals 10cm/4″ square using 3 mm/ US 2-3. Amoretto has a stunning stitch definition as seen here. Here is a close up of the swatch.

Here is a picture of the shrug worn as a laced polo neck fastened with a shawl pin at the back, creating a hood, and with the wrist-warmers tied on. It is available in 10 beautiful colours, several of them are marled. The pattern will be available in both Norwegian and in English. I am waiting to see it professionally photographed and will keep you posted. See www.thomaskvist.se
