homespun yarn died with kool-aid..
knitting it up..
so nice and snuggly..(^_^)
Another shrug also with homespun but it was pre-died .
Aprox.... 240 yds medium weight yarn
Half the amount of eyelash or other novelty yarn
Size 11 needles
Size 35 needles
With size 11 needles, cast on 48 sts. (or an amount that looks the right width to you)Row1-3
carry along one strand of eyelash yarnRows 5-6
drop eyelash and knit with main yarn
(when u get to the side of the knitting where u dropped your eyelash yarn... twist it with your working yarn to carry it up the side of your work)
*Pick up and carry along eyelash yarn every 3 rows or where it looks good through out*Row 7-9
With larger needles, Knit
Repeat rows 1-9 ending with the 6th row for about 40" or until it wraps comfortably around your shoulders.
dont bind off yet. Pick up 40 sts on cast on end , lay out wrap and twist it. hold both needles together and do a 3 needle bind off. I use a crochet hook to link the stitches together.
I hope that makes sense
