Avana Shrug (2016)
Yarn: Austerman Alpaca Silk (80% Alpaca, 20% Silk)
Pattern: Avana Shrug by Annie Rowden
Completed: December 31, 2016
Fun, fast knit! An interesting construction. I got gauge with this yarn and 4.5mm needles. Measurements after washing: 38” cuff to cuff or 33” body edge to body edge. 11” wide. (Measurements taken with it flat on the floor, in its natural, doubled, position).
The “formal” photoshoot in the backyard was done in January 2017 — and it amazed me to be comfortable wearing a sleeveless dress and the shrug, outdoors. More of a reflection of the weather than the shrug, but there you are.
