After I brought in River a couple of months ago, I had a relentless impulse to use it. Generally, I have too many things on needles (right in front of me on the table) to just cast-on any old thing without a purpose, so happily for me, a purpose created itself. This darling girl who you see in the pictures rarely wears knitted things outside of the pictures, but the combination of this cute shrug and super delicious River means I have finally won her over with a knitted garment!
The Eclipse Shrug is made using a simple stitch pattern and the tiniest amount of seaming, making it a nice accessible pattern for everyone. The smallest size (seen here) is made with just 2 hanks of River and the pattern sizes up to a XXL (4 hanks of River). The Eclipse Shrug pattern will be free through the month of July with the purchase of 2 or more hanks of River.
