Virtuosity Shrug

$8.00

The Virtuosity Shrug uses the tried-and-true granny cluster stitch but takes them to a new level. The term virtuosity is defined as great skill in music or artistic pursuit, and this shrug will really show off your skills, but it’ll be our little secret that most of it is just a basic 2-row repeat.

I love working with hand-dyed yarns because I used to sell them in my yarn shop, the Yarnover Truck! This piece shows them off beautifully. You use simple stitches, so your Virtuosity Shrug will look amazing in a variety of different yarn types and colors. Plus shrugs only require a few sizing and fitting modifications, so I hope you’ll find this piece an enjoyable make!
