A popular item of clothing is a shrug, when you want to add another layer without too much bulk.  A shrug covers a small portion of the upper body. Some shrugs are tied together just below the bustline. Another style is cut off at the sides and thus little more than a pair of sleeves joined at the back.  Shrugs can have long sleeves or short sleeves.  The one below is a short sleeved version using this pattern.

It was made using Sirdar Summer Stripes Yarn, which is 60% Cotton and 40% Acrylic and comes in 50g balls.  The Knitting Basket has three lovely colours on stock and more colours can be ordered.  When first looking at this yarn it's hard to believe the wonderful colours that pop from it.

Another little shrug we have in the store as a sample is a one that is for a baby.  This would be ideal over a onesie when there is a little chill in the air. 

This was knit using Sirdar Americana Yarn and  is 60% Cotton and 40% Acrylic and comes in 50g balls. Again The Knitting Basket has three colours on stock and more can be ordered.  It knits up beautifully and we do have the pattern available, free of charge if anyone wants it, please just ask.

Why not pop into The Knitting Basket and have a browse around the store and pick up some yarn then sit yourself down and make a start on that shawl during one of our knit and sit sessions!

So be sure to stock up before I leave for the week :)
