I am delighted to present Naknek – the springs hottest shrug! Naknek is perfect for those cool summer evenings or whenever you want to cuddle up in something soft. Or simply whenever you want to look smashing!
I have made Naknek in two different yarns. The grey one is knitted in DROPS Eskimo in size S. This is a bulky single stranded yarn spun from 100 % wool. The purple one is knitted in Sulka by Mirasol in size M. Sulka is a bulky single stranded yarn spun from 60 % merino, 20 % alpaca and 20 % silk.
Naknek is worked on US 11 / 8 mm needles and is a fast knit. Nakned is worked in moss stitch with a ribbed edge. Naknek is worked in one piece and if you hate having to sew garments together (like I do) I can ease your mind with the reassurance that all the finishing necessary on Naknek is weaving in yarn ends. This is a really fun knit and the result is very cool. Naknek was an immediate favourite both with me and my teenage daughter. I am glad I made two, so we can have one each!
