Brisa Shrug

Introducing the sixth of my new patterns I am releasing this Fall:
Brisa Shrug

Brisa is a dressy little number to throw on over a simple dress to warm your shoulders on a cool night or for a little something special with your fancy cocktail dress. Beads float gently at the top of eyelets adding a bit of “bling”, though you can easily not use beads and still have a great lacey topper.    Brisa Shrug is worked in halves from sleeve to  center back and then grafted down the back.  The sleeves and edging are worked with feather and fan stitch (a personal favorite!)  The eyelet stitch pattern is a 6 stitch, 4 row repeat and EASY to memorize... promise!

The indigo version is the smaller than the smallest size, knit under deadline for Circular Knitting Redefined.  When I decided to release the pattern in my own line as well I sized the pattern up a bit a knit a second version without beads.  (The green version is colorway Laura Hobson, size: medium) Both shrugs are knit in Schaefer's Heather, a superwash wool, silk, nylon that holds it's definition in the lace stitch beautifully.

When working this design I remembered how much I LOVE the feather and fan stitch.  This is probably the first lace stitch I ever worked and it is so comforting to me... I keep saying that one day I'll make a whole fingering weight blanket in it, and then I wake up!
