Knitting pattern for Smilla's Sleeves by Anne Ventzel
Smilla´s Sleeves is a generous and feminine shrug with a simple cable pattern, which is used across many of Anne Ventzels designs. Snuggle up in this cozy alternative to a cardigan or use it on top of a dress when you are going out.
Choose which size shrug to knit based on the back width measurement. Please note that your size across the shoulders can be quite different from, for example, your bust measurement, so you may need to choose a different size than you normally do. Try on a cardigan from your wardrobe and imagining it without fronts. This, together with the measurements given in the pattern, can help you choose sizes.
At Önling you can choose between two yarn kits for Smilla's Sleeves. Work it in Önling No 1 for a lovely and fluffy result or knit it in an ultra soft and luxurious version in cashmere yarn held together with silk mohair.
The pattern is available in English, German, Norwegian and Swedish.

The shrug is worked from the back of the neck down. First the neck edge for the back is worked and then the back. Then stitches are picked up and knitted along the shoulders for the fronts. The back and fronts are joined at the underarms and the short body is worked back and forth to the hem og the shrug. After this stitches are picked up and knitted along the armholes and the sleeve are worked down and in the round.
