Ethel Shrug or Bolero patttern is one of three shrugs in a set, using the same basic shape but worked with a different type of knitting stitch. These shrugs are perfect to pop over your shoulders when you are watching TV, relaxing on the sofa or to cover up a little when sitting outside. The super chunky wool will keep you warm, even on the chilliest of evenings!
They are mainly knitted in a rectangle, from the bottom up, this time using garter stitch and stripes. There is a little shaping at the back of the neck using short rows. The arm holes are made at the end by folding the edges together and sewing them up just part of the way. As it uses super chunky weight yarn the shrug will knit up quickly. Perfect if you want to whip up a quick gift for a loved one! The Edith shrug is knitted with the diagonal basket weave stitch. This is a really eye-catching stitch which looks more difficult than it is.
It is knitted bottom up, with set in sleeves and the band down the front and round the neck are picked up and knitted. The stockinette stitch makes it perfect for a variegated yarn but would also look fabulous in a plain colour.
The Edna shrug is knitted in stocking stitch, and is ideal as a project for a new knitter. As it uses super chunky weight yarn the shrug will knit up quickly.

Ethel Shrug Pattern Gallery
As always, when I’m knitting for the knitworthy members of my family or dear friends, I consider how they’re going to wear it, wash it, the colours they love and what styles they wear.
