“'Sheaves' Shrug by Florence Smith”
I don’t do well in air conditioning… I’m always cold. My solution is a Shrug where my arms and shoulders are covered, but I don't have to worry about the rest of the sweater getting in my way.

The stitch design is based on the Lacy Entrelac pattern in Mon Tricot’s Knitting Encyclopedia:1500 Patterns book that was published in the mid-1980’s. It looks like ears of corn on stalks.

It is fun to knit and does not require extensive knitting experience. You do need to know how to Make 1, KFB (Knit Front & Back), SKP (Slip1 Knit1 Pass slipped stitch over), SSK(slip, Slip, Knit) and K2Tog (Knit 2 together). The 2 stitch cables, also known as Left Twist and Right Twists, are explained in the pattern instructions.

Stated Gauge is 16 st/4" using US9 needles. This project can be done on Straight or Circular needles. The stitch pattern is Lacy Entrelac from Mon Tricot’s Knitting Encyclopedia:1500 Patterns Seams are completed using matress stitch. Single Crochet is used around back opening to help retard stretching.

Length (wrist to wrist) = 61" Wrist Circumference = 7" Neck to Waist = 18.5" Back (Top of Sleeve to Top of Sleeve) 18"
