Knit Shrug for 18" Doll

Good morning,

Today my 18" doll, Ginger, is modeling a very, very easy knit shrug.  She's wearing the shrug over a sleeveless jumper.

Although this could be knit flat and seams sewn for the sleeves, it's important to knit in the round. If made flat, seams will be to the front of Ginger's arms.

Comments? I'd love to hear from you.



Knit Shrug for 18 " Doll

Quick and Easy

Materials:  Gjestal Sildre sport weight yarn, one 50 gr. ball
#7 dp needles

Gauge: 6 st x 8 rows = 1"

Cast on 32 st. and divide equally on dp needles

Knit in stockingette stitch in round being careful not to twist

First sleeve: knit 4". Cuff will roll naturally. Measure with cuff unrolled/flat.

Back: Knit back and forth in stockingette stitch for 5".

Second sleeve: Place marker and resume knitting in the round for another 4".

Break off, weave in ends.
