“This shrug is very comfortable and cuddly, yet still very stylish. It looks good on everyone.” – Katya
Unusual shape makes Enlow, designed by Katya Bevinamara, a special piece to make and to wear. The combination of knits and purls in our new Mohair Silk DK, create a texture that imitates weaving, a sumptuous delight. Warm, cozy, and utterly unique, this shrug is a must for every fall wardrobe.
This item is knit both in rounds and flat. Knitting begins at the cuff, and the sleeve is knit in the round. After one half of the shrug is completed, the live stitches are put on hold (on additional needles or a spare cable), and the second symmetrical half is knit in the same manner. Of course, we include both the written and charted stitch patterns.
34 (36, 38, 40, 42)” / 86.5 (91.5, 96.5, 101.5, 106.5) cm bust circumference
23 ½ (24, 24 ¾, 25 ¼, 25 ½)” / 59.5 (61, 63, 64, 65) cm back neck to hem (laid flat), including trim. When worn, shrug will stretch to about 25% longer under own weight.
Intended to be worn with large positive ease for an oversized “cocoon” look.

Size 6 US / 4.0 mm circular needles in various lengths 16″ / 40 cm, 24″ / 60 cm, 26″ / 90 cm, and 48″ / 120 cm long (to accomodate increase in stitch counts)

26 sts and 27 rows = 4″ / 10 cm in Twill A st, after blocking
20 sts and 37 rows = 4″ / 10 cm in Garter st, after blocking

NOTE: Due to direction of knitting for this garment (side to side, rather than up/down), length of knitting is specified in rnds/rows, not inches/cm, and thus matching vertical gauge is important. Minor deviation from vertical gauge is acceptable as the garment design is quite loose, but will affect yardage requirements.
