The Pil Shrug is a cozy “throw over the shoulders” knit for those chilly days. Knitted in worsted weight, you can choose your preferred yarn. Why not Merino for spring days or Cotton for those chilly summer nights? Choose between three lengths, short, medium, or long!
Pil means arrow in Swedish, and on the back, you will find an eyelet arrow pattern that gives the shrug a nice texture.
The shrug is knitted flat, back and forth, on circular needles, then finished off by sewing together the sides and picking up stitches around the body and armhole to knit the hem in the round.
As a shrug it is designed to be open in the front and cover shoulders and arms.
It’s a perfect piece for changing weathers. I am in love. Thank you!
