For these past weeks I have worked on a pattern for a Tunisian crochet shrug. I found it hard to find the right yarn that would best make my idea real. But I have come across the perfect yarn for it : Ulysse from De Rerum Natura. Taking notes and working out a pattern, that’s one thing. Publish a pattern in different sizes, that’s a completely different story. So, who wants to test this shrug to support me?
The main construction of this shrug is a seamless raglan. Nothing unusual so far. What makes this project interesting, in my humble opinion, is how the neck band shows the same stitch pattern on both sides. It’s reversible.
Here is what the whole shrug looks like (on the blocking board right now):
Even without blocking, this shrug does not curl at all. I decided to block it just for the sake of it. Now I’m working on the different sizes. Who wants to test this pattern? And in which size?
I would enjoy testing this pattern in a small size, although I think I would need to use a different yarn. I’m fairly new to tunisian crochet, but have extensive experience with other fiberarts, and hope to learn a bit about construction and design by participating in this project. Would be happy to go over details via email.
The translation of the pattern in English is almost finished. (The pattern is first written in French.) I will create a test thread in the Testing group on Ravelry this week. Should you be interested, send me a pm on Ravelry (my username is Raccroc).
With a little delay, the test for the shrug is now launched on Ravelry, in the group Testing pool (for English speakers). Here is the direct link: https://www.ravelry.com/discuss/the-testing-pool/3966039/1-25
