Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 16 sts + 22 rows to knit a shrug that is about 38 inch x 44 inch (96-1/2 cm x 112 cm), before folding and seaming. Remember to check your gauge. 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. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 inch (10 cm) square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if it takes you more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
