This pattern is knitted top down seamless. The color work is half knitted in and half duplicate stitch. A rounded tip plastic yarn needle is important! I have used a pointed tapestry needle on this pattern and the foxes came out speckled even though I was carful, so invest in a plastic rounded yarn needle!
This shrug is worked side to side from cuff to cuff. Sleeves are worked in the round, the back is worked flat, then the band is picked up around selvedge edges of back and worked in the round, making a pretty shawl collar.The sample shown was knit in The Fibre Co. Canopy Worsted, shade Acai. Substitute yarns are recommended below.
