Colorflow Circle Shrug


This is Sarah Punderson’s Circle Short-Sleeved Cardigan, from Plymouth Yarns booklet #1610, Kudo. That probably feels like a tad more, and maybe a tad less, than you want to know. It is short-sleeved. But I consider it a shrug, not a cardigan. It’s a circle, with two arms knitted in. Slip your arms into the armholes–either arm either hole–and the long shawl collar falls into place.The upper half is identical to the lower half. Very ingenious. Very comfy. And a bunch of fun to knit.


My version is knit in Blackberry Ridge Colorflow yarn, in the Autumn Rag shade.It’s a great garment. If you gift it to someone, be sure to give wearing instructions. People will be puzzled by the lack of a neckhole.
