GAUGE:
21 sts + 26 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in sc using larger hook; 10 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over Dc-Mesh pattern using larger hook. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

CONSTRUCTION NOTES
1.

Shrug is made in 2 pieces: an Upper Half and a Lower Half.

Each half consists of half of each sleeve and a center section.


2.

Center section of Upper Half forms the shoulders and collar.

The center section of the Lower Half forms back and sides.
2.

The Upper and Lower Halves are seamed along long straight edges.

Side and sleeve are seamed, then cuffs are worked.

The shorter straight edges of the Upper and Lower Halves form the front opening.
