Inspired by the popularity of BBC programs like Downton Abbey and The Forsyte Saga, the Highclere Shrug adds a romantic touch to any outfit.

Knit in fingering/sock weight yarn, the body is worked in one piece, bottom-up, to the armholes, then split into fronts and back. The body of the shrug, as well as each sleeve, is finished with a neat row of single crochet, then a luxurious lace ruffle is picked up and knit in the round, and completed with a delicate picot bind off.

Colorway is Aphrodite, and this sweater is featured in a special advertising section of the 30th Anniversary Issue (The Pearl Issue) of Vogue Knitting.

This pattern does NOT have line by line instructions for all shaping! I know for some of you that’s a plus and for some a minus! The body of the shrug is a bottom-up 4-row repeat that is written out, the fronts, backs and sleeves have “increase/decrease this many times this frequently while maintaining lace pattern as established” instructions. It has been tech edited and tested.
