SHUGGLE is a comfortable and soft cardigan/shrug. It can be worn in two ways; with a waterfall front or as an elegant cardigan. Shuggle is worked in two different yarn weights, (DK and 4ply) and two different types of yarn.
Uncomplicated and effortless to make, worked from cuff to cuff in one piece, first working in the round for the first sleeve, then working the centre back section in rows, then back to working the second sleeve section in the round. Shuggle has an interesting lace motif collar/hem worked by picking up stitches around the shrug. The darker, thicker contrast yarn gives a shadow edging that balances garment. Fasten with a shawl-pin from our collection, or just drape over your shoulder for a statement and warm cover-up.
