A gorgeous shrug pattern, just choose your size to suit your style. The perfect accessory for when the sun sets and and a chill falls. Dress it up or dress it down, the soft draping fabric will do it all. 

A celebration of Ginger Twist Studio's 7th Birthday, the Septennial Twist Shrug is designed with two of Ginger's Hand Dyed favourite yarns held together to create a beautifully soft and draping fabric.

The shrug is knit sideways as a flat rectangle then folded in half and partially sewn to create armholes. Stitches are then picked up around the sleeve and body openings to be finished off with ribbing. 

The colourway shown in the sample pictured is 'Voyager.' Each printed pattern also comes with a download code for the digital version.
