Glitter Shrug

Knit up this all year-round shrug with this soft yarn with a touch of metallic.

About 36 x 26 in. (91.5 x 66 cm), before folding and seaming

• 861-170 Lion Brand Vanna's Glamour: Topaz 6 Balls
• Stitch Markers
• Large-Eye Blunt Needle
• Additional Materials
Circular knitting needle size 5 (3.75 mm), 29 in. (73.5 cm) long

24 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a
smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of sts. Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.
