The story about shrug Leaf

 

It started with an idea of leafs, put together, and a wish to combine knitting and crocheting.

 

The first version of this shrug was pink, and made of pure wool. It came out nice, but Aud B wanted to try a softer yarn, to see how that would affect the shrug. The combination of alpaca and silk is very soft, and nice to wear. And it has a light sheen.

 

Another change is the rib. The first version had purls. Rib was chosen because of it gives more flexibility to garments, and looks a little bit rougher.

 

At last the crocheting was made more open, as was the thought from the very beginning.
