Short Shrug

Knifty Knitter Shrug
1. Body of shrug: Using 2 strands of yarn, wrap around the peg on the outside of the loom, leaving about 3 to 4 inches of tail hanging from the tack. This is your starting point.
2. Wrap the yarn counter clock wise around each peg, traveling in a clockwise direction; reverse on the last peg and wrap back to the first peg. Hold the loom so you are looking at the tack and the pegs are pointing upward.
3. Now using the hook tool, pick up the bottom loop or wrap of yarn and take over the top loop.
4. Wrap and knit until you have the length you would like for your shrug. To determine the size of the shrug, measure from your elbow, across the shoulders, and back to the elbow, for the main part of the shrug.
5. Removing: With a crochet hook, take the first loop from the peg and crochet, using the wrapping yarn through the loop.
6. Do a single crochet (wrap the yarn over the hook and draw the yarn through the loop on the hook) in between each of the loops on the pegs.
7. Cut the yarn attached and pull it all the way through the loop on the crochet hook. Pull it tight for a complete knot.
8. Cuff: Use the small loom (blue). Wrap completely around the loom and knit a circle for the cuff the length you would desire. Remove with a crochet hook the same as for the body of the shrug. You will need 2 of these. (Make sure they are the same size.)
9. Completion: Turn your shrug wrong-side out and using your same yarn, crochet both sides together to your desired length for the arms. Leave the ends open for your cuffs.
10. Turn the cuffs wrong side and crochet to the shrug. Seams may be pressed with steam from an iron, but DO NOT LET IRON TOUCH the shrug. Hand wash gentle.
