The Maven Pattern Download
A beautiful, light, cosy knit for an extra layer of warmth!
The Maven Shrug is one that will become your go-to in your winter wardrobe. It's knitted top down, in the round with shoulder shaping increases so that it fits snugly. Then the pattern divides and you work back and forth on the front and then the back. The side splits are for ease of movement and you can then also wear a winter coat over top.
This is actually a brilliant pattern to start on if you are keen to knit jumpers in the round as it uses similar stitchwork.
