The Friday Shrug completes the weekend of shrug patterns. Friday is a color celebration on your needles where the fireworks never fade. This is a play forward project. You get to invite nine colors of fingering weight yarn to join you in the fun. Yarns are held double throughout. Begin with the neutral section and knit toward the color climax or dive in and cast on the tip right away. Stash? Yes. Sharing? Yes. More than one? Yes! Yes! Yes! Free pattern can be downloaded on Ravelry:Friday Shrug Pattern.

Elmer Fingering is a woolen spun Merino/ Cashmere blend. Like Elmer Tweed, it's rustic with a beautiful texture and richness. It’s fantastic on its own and perfect for colorwork. It’s light, lofty and holds its shape beautifully. All the hold and snap back of wool with a whisper of cashmere for softness and halo.
Elmer Fingering is 410 yards per 100 gram skein 80% Merino/20% Cashmere

Elmer Tweed Fingering:
We just had to have us some tweed— some Elmer Tweed! Elmer Tweed is woolen spun with more than just a pinch of cashmere. It has a rustic essence and a beautiful richness. It’s fantastic on its own and perfect for colorwork. This tweed holds its shape beautifully while remaining lightweight. The little tweedy bits of color keep you wanting to knit “just one more round” in anticipation of what bits will appear next. This incredibly plush yarn will bring you right onto the tweed bandwagon if we do say so ourselves! (Elmer Tweed is 70% wool and 30% cashmere.)
Fingering Weight: 200 yards per skein
Colorways Sprinkles and Neon Sign are 100g skeins with 400 yards per skein.
