Crochet purple shrug / cardigan
I made my mother in law an early christmas present. Thought she needed something to warm her during the cold winter. A large shawl felt too clumsy so instead I made her an open unbuttoned cardigan that is easy to wear over any other clothing. The yarn is alpaca wool and the colour is dark purple and much more beuatiful in real life than from a picture taken indoors in bad lightning at a winter evening in December.
The pattern is an easy but nice lattice:
1 dc, 1 ch skip one ch.
The trimming around the front and the sleeves is formed by starting every round with 5 dc and then continue with the lattice-pattern.
The cardigan is made from one piece and feels realy light and have no uncomfortably seams at shoulder or armholes.
Vikning för axel=Fold for shoulder
Höger och vänster framstycke ligger omlott=Right and left front is covering each other.
The yarn is Master Alpaca Purple (25% Alpaca, 25% Merino Wool, 50% Acrylic, 175 m/50 gr) and is from Yarn-Paradise. I used crochet hook 4,5 mm.
