I’ve just finished another Hot Patterns Slinky Shrug (first version and tips for download given here) in a black, gray and white colorway.
I had a little over 2 yards of this great 60″ wide fabric from The Wool House so it was perfect for a shrug. It’s a loosely woven wool, very warm and I had just one yard of the faux fur.
I faced the back faux fur stripe with silk charmeuse because I wanted to have enough left over so I could make a gift for a very special person out of the rest of the wool and fur. I believe I’ll have just enough.
I wasn’t really prepped for photos today and I’m in a bit of a hurry to finish up, shut down and go home, but what must be, must be :). We had our first snow of the season today (love it!)
This shrug was cut on the bias and is fully lined with black stretch silk charmeuse from GorgeousFabrics.com (lovely stuff!) I used a fusible tape to secure all the cut edges of the wool and then used a multistitch zigzag on top of it to ensure no fraying.
It’s comfy! And very very warm.
