This shrug is a hybrid of two techniques, with the main back piece crocheted and the trim knitted. Oddly, many people hold “views” on combining these techniques (perhaps borne of snobbish attitudes towards whichever one they don’t do). But I say, let us fibre craft together!


Like many hybrids, it takes advantage of the benefits given by both parents. The crochet grows very quickly and gives a relaxed airy panel and the knitted trim gives an elastic edge with good drape.

This works-up nice and quickly (the crochet panel can be done in an evening, but the knitting takes longer) and is a good stash buster.

Good for smartening up a sun dress, but watch out for comedy tan lines!
