Aynia Shrug—pattern info continued

Cecily MacDonald worked the Chickadee Aynia Shrug in one piece. Cast on stitches for the lower back edge of the back and knit up to the armhole, working a few increases along the side edge for shaping. At the armhole, cast on a few stitches at each end of the needle for the cap sleeve and its knitted-in lace border. Work across the back and sleeves to an inch or so before the shoulder. Mark off the center back neck stitches, plus seven each side of the neck stitches for the lace border and work the lace pattern for an inch before binding off the back neck. One half of the shrug is done.

Next half, the fronts. Place stitches for one of the fronts on a holder or waste yarn. Work the remaining stitches—front and cap sleeve—to the underarm. The first and last seven stitches continue the lace border along the sleeve and center front edges. A little shaping along the front edge, a quick bind off to end the cap sleeve and you’re almost home. At the hemline, bind off all stitches except for the seven that form the lace border at the center front edge. Cont working back and forth on these lace stitches to create a band that reaches from the bottom edge of the front around to the center back when the sides are seamed together. Second front same as the first. Seam the sides, sew on the border—and you’re done.

    When I originally left a comment I accidently clicked the “Notify me of new comments” checkbox and now every time a new comment is added I get 2 separate emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can take away me from that service? Thanks for your help.
