The Melted Shrug is part cardigan, part shawl with sleeves and an all-around feel-good garment that you won’t want to take off.

This seamless oversized casual shrug has a fun modular top-down construction and is knit in two textures: the fluffy textural garter stitch is extra soft thanks to Qing Fibre’s Melted Baby Suri that is striped with Fingering weight Merino (use the same colorways for both bases for a softer look or different colors for a more graphic effect). The fronts and back are knit in two-color brioche to add another textural and stripe dimension.
The contrasting ribbed sleeve cuffs add a pop of color and make sure the shrug stays on. A matching i-cord surrounds the entire shrug for a neat and finished look.

Feel free to substitute two strands of Merino held together for the Melted Baby Suri or a fingering weight yarn of your choice.

This pattern was designed in collaboration with Do Ewe Knit? and Qing Fibre for Vogue Knitting Live New York 2019.
