Watergardens...a pool of blue-green shimmering in the back of your thoughts, half mirage, half reality, the dream of summer on a winter's day or the promise of warmth in a cool breeze.

Here's a loose, flowing very romantic shrug, knit on big needles and using simple stitches with both a luxury and a more economical yarn list option. All the yarn is available online, as am I if you have any questions..

There are actually two versions of this shrug provided in the pattern.Version Two, Shoreline, is a beachy combination of neutrals with beaded options.

PS: I've just added a Louisa Harding yarn option for both shrugs. Those new spring yarns of hers are gorgeous!

Love your shrug, Jane

Always thought that shrugs were for someone a little younger than myself, but love the sophisticated line of yours! Saw that you've included Berroco yarns, very accessible for many of us. Looking forward to seeing your other version as well.

Both versions are included in the pattern -- you can see a small picture if you click on the Purchase patterns button.

I just posted information on the second version, which should help a little.

I just discovered how well the new Louisa Harding yarns work with this pattern. She has Sari ribbon now in lovely sea greens with coordinating tapes and yarns -- perfect. For the seashell version, there's a range of lovely shell pinks, too. I'll be posting that yarn list on my site this weekend.

Knitrageous, perfectly! I love Colinette. They have the hand-dyed tapes, the interesting lashes, that stranded yarn the name of which I forget and the colors! Gorgeous!

Hi Jane,

Love your site...evev sent a link to my sister, Jane...she is not a knitter but a writer and lover of art.

I wondered if any of your patterns are fit for me? I'm definitely plus-sized apple with a stomach that just won't quit or hide...I hate it. Seems like the shrog would make it even more prominent???? Wold the cape be better?

Thanks, Kathie

Kathie, the capelet is certainly sized to fit most people and can be made a little longer, too. Also, the Indigo Road vest has vertical lines with expandable side gussets designed to accommodate generous forms (I exapanded the original design so anybody's body could be accommodated by adding a side panel). It's so hard to say what will look good on people, though.

Your Watergarden Shrug is simply a work of art! I love the texture you achieve with the various yarns and the color schemes are right on. Only 8.50?? That is a steal!

I have two Colinette Vintage kits...one in pinks and the other in purples. I was thinking the pink might look pretty for spring.

Should I add some other yarns or do you think it will be enough as it is?

What other yarns are in the kits, Jayme, -- Giotto and maybe Firecracker? You can certainly work these patterns in just two or three yarns (even one, for that matter) but a tape (Giotto), a ribbon (Giotto sort of applies here, too), a lash/specialty yarn (Firecracker) and another yarn for in between (any cotton, any silk in the same color family) will more closely create a similiar affect to the pictures.

Pink would be gorgeous in this very spring-like pattern but hold on to those purples! I have a pattern coming out closer to fall for another shawl-with-sleeves that just cries out for a little drama. Purple would be perfect.

Jane: Thanks, Sandra! I just visited your website. What glorious yarns and I'm so excited you carry LaLana Bombyx silk! One of the suggested yarns for Watergarden is Bombyx in Forest and Apple green!

La Lana's Bombyx Silk is high quality & you'll be pleased with your results, but the best part about it...the colors!
