____________inches Total Across: Elbow to Elbow
1/4 ___sts Arm 1/2___sts Neck 1/4___sts Arm
____inches Down from Back of Neck to Hip
____Total Rows to knit.
9. Cast on your ___ sts.
(My cast on is 144 sts. The arms are 32 sts for each arm and 72 sts for neck.)
1. Garter stitch the first 1/4 total sts and place marker (pm), then knit (k) 1/2 total sts, pm; k the last 1/4 sts. Leave the markers there.
(For me, total of 144 sts=k36, pm, k72, pm, k36.)
2. The total amount of rows = the measurement from the back of the neck to the hip. Check your gauge on your swatch or you skein label to determine your rows.
(For me, the measurement is 15 inches. My gauge in a 4X4 swatch is 18sts X 24 rows. (6 rows per inch X 15 inches =90 rows.)
3. Once you completed to the final row, bind off. Use scissors to cut off a very long piece of yarn. Place the second set of markers as in step 1 so as to keep the markers in place to sew with the darning needle the 2 arm placements.
4. Sew the 2 arm placements together.
5. Try on your new shrug.
Remember, you make knitting magic! Valis :)
