New Free Pattern, Mi'raj Shrug

Mi'raj means ladder in arabic, and that is the effect that the simple stitch pattern gives to this simple to knit garment.  It is worked from cuff to cuff, first in the round, then back and forth for the opening then in the round again with an easy double yarn over stitch pattern.   There are two versions, one short and one long sleeved and there is an optional collar as well!  A great pattern for adapting to be just the way you want it.  Knit out of The Fibre Company Road to China, this shrug will definitely keep you warm, and be super soft even on bare shoulders.

The Road to China keeps your shoulders warm, but also gives just the right amount of drape to this garment.

The collar is picked up around the body opening and worked in pattern to desired length.  Here's a pointer on that, however.  If you pick up stitches with the right side facing you will want to knit a collar that is about 4" or less in length so that the collar doesn't turn over leaving the wrong side facing.  If you want a long, dramatic collar that turns over pick up stitches with the wrong side facing.  This way when the collar 'flops' over the right side will also face out.
