I first heard of this pattern on the Wool Work Shop youtube podcast. The construction is very unique, it has a combination of brioche and garter stitch. Susanne has also provided a youtube video for the set up. That was a huge benefit for me. I started this shrug several times. Not because it was so hard but rather I had color combo issues. I strongly advise totally different color choices for your light and dark. Really, like colors that you don't even think match.

The colors are again too similar once knit up in the pattern, too much the same tone. You couldn't really see the pattern.

This is the winning combo. I decided to knit this for my daughter, Hanna. It reminds me a bit of a skeleton in this color combo. A win for this girl, I'm quite sure. Find my project on Ravelry to follow up dates.

Until next time, Happy Knitting, Happy Life.
