Would it work with sport yarn?TRINITYCRAFTSISTER said:I am making a shrug for myself at the moment. Mine is in chunky wool in a mosaic brown variegated yarn but have done it in Aran for my daughter.
For my size (large adult) I cast on 150 stitches on 8mm needles. I used 5.5 mm for the Arun. I knitted 5 inches in ribbing and then changed to stocking stitch. I will do this until it is long enough to fit me and then repeat the 5 inches of rib. Cast off. You then fold the rectangle in half with rib/cast off/cast on together and sew up the sides from the bottom for about 8 inches to get a comfortable sleeve opening.
You can use whatever stitch you want. Very adaptable.
Hope this helps. God Bless - Janet still sunny East Sussex UK
