GAUGE:
16 sts + Rows 1-9 = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern st. 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.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
Picot Ch 3, sl st in top of last sc made.

NOTES:
1.

Shrug is worked in 2 halves from center of back to lower edge of sleeve.

Shrug halves are joined at center back, then seamed to make sleeves.

2.

When you see "– 12 sts." in the instructions, this lets you know how many sts you will have at the end of that specific row.

3.

To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over.

Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st.

Fasten off old color.

4.

Shrug can be worked following the written instructions below, or by following the Chart.

Read Chart from right to left on RS rows and from left to right on WS rows.
