Rectangle /

Jenny Trygg

A parallelogram all of whose angles are right angles. This loose, open shrug is a casually elegant outerwear piece. Baby Alpaca lends softness and drape to the piece, while a mock rib stitch pattern adds rich texture. Constructed from one large rectangle that is vigorously blocked and seamed to fit, Rectangle is an adventurous project for the beginner or a relaxing one for more advanced knitters.
