Loom Knit ‘Tzara’ Shrug
This little shrug was adapted from Berroco’s Tzara pattern for the loom. Using the Knifty Knitter purple round loom and the e-wrap stitch, the width is EXACTLY 19″, which is the width of the Tzara pattern. Very slick! So let’s begin the adaptation….
What you’ll need:
- KK purple circular loom
- Size H crochet hook, OPTIONAL
- 2 skeins of Bernat Softee Chunky for a size x-small (which is the size I made) and 3 skeins for the small/medium and large/x-large. (I used Teal).
THESE INSTRUCTIONS ARE FOR AN X-SMALL SIZE. For the s/m & l/xl size, refer to Berroco’s dimensions.
Cast on all pegs. I chose to use the long-tail cast on.
Working as a panel, slip the first stitch and e-wrap across; repeat until panel measures approximately 45″ long. (Again, for s/m & l/xl sizes, refer to Berroco’s dimensions.)
When panel is completed, bind off, weave in ends and block to specified sizes. For an xs, block to 19″ x 45″. (I chose to use the basic bind off method.)
If you want a bit of finishing to the cuffs, as I did, join yarn to cuff and single crochet around. Join to beginning sk and weave in all ends.
One final note: The longer your panel, the wider the shoulder opening will be, which means the shrug might have a habit of falling off your shoulders if it’s TOO long! If wondering how long or short your panel should be, making it shorter rather than longer will probably be your best bet.
