Yarn Bundles

The amazing Layla from Qing Fiber and I have come up with some speckletastic yarn bundles for the Shusui Shrug. You can chose between two- or three-skein bundles that will be the star of your shrug (Color A).
All yarn bundles include a free printed copy of the Shusui Shrug pattern plus a download code for the digital version.
Sorry, the yarn bundle from the Qing Fiber Etsy Shop are sold out!

Pattern
Brioche and Garter are a match made in heaven – and the combination offers endless possibilities. This sleeved shawl is a drapey shrug with extra long sleeves.

The shrug is knit top-down like a shawl, starting at the center back, in two-color brioche and garter stitch with brioche sections at the back and fronts, large eyelet increases at the shoulders and one-color brioche sleeves.

The pattern is named after the minty speckled foreground color, dyed by the awesome Layla Qing of Qing Fiber on a super soft merino/cashmere base. The sample shrug is knit with two different semisolid background colors (Color B) – minty blue and minty green – for a slight gradient effect. For an extra color pop, the i-cord BO is worked in a contrasting color, a super-bright neon orange by Hedgehog Fibres that picks up the orange speckles.
