It’s nice to see such a wearable piece that a beginner can knit.
From Diary of a Creative Fanatic:
The shrug can be made in cotton for spring and tweed for fall or in a velvety yarn for special occasions. This pattern is that versatile.
Two pieces to knit – one, a straight piece of knitting in stripes of straight and reverse stocking stitch and the other piece with simple increases forming the back and sleeves which are folded down to make armholes.
This tutorial consists of 1 panel of fabric, 2 slits for arms and 2 button holes. I find the diagrams for this DIY Bina Brianca Inspired Scarf easier to follow than other tutorials. Also, there are clear instructions on how to customize the size so the scarf can fit everyone.
*I posted this on my other blog a long time ago but this post has updated tutorial information and better photos. I’m posting the updated version on my Holiday Blog because this would make a great gift with the Bina Brianca PDF Manual printed out. If you don’t want to DIY you can buy from Bina Brianca, made out of 100% Modal Jersey, for $42.50 here.
