Notes From the Designer:

I love to dance and have danced for years. One of my dances of choice is ballet. When you finish your dance, you curtsy. To me, the curtsy is a very respectful gesture and represents the presentation and the end of something that has been beautiful and flowing. Speaking of flowing, that is what this shrug does. It is made with Sugar Fluff Fingering yarn, which means it is soft and feels silky and lustrous as it drapes from its frame, thus a curtsy.

Curtsy was designed with 3/4 length sleeves. Layer this on top of your shirts and blouses for some warmth. You can wear it and show off your bracelets! Curtsy is knit with three colors that graduate into each other. A collar was added to finish off this design. Enjoy!

  • The edges of the sleeves will curl or roll because of the Stockinette stitch. That is part of the flow and gives the shrug a soft look. If the curl bothers you, use the instructions in the Finishing Section to add an edging to the sleeves in the same way as you’re instructed to do for the bottom edge of the shrug.
  • This shrug is very easy to wear over tees and tops, and when made with the recommended yarn, Curtsy is a very light shrug that will keep you warm in restaurants and offices.
  • The shrug is knitted in six sections. Three of these sections are solid colors, and the other three sections use two alternating colors that transition to the next solid color section.
