Atlas Shrug

  “Atlas Shrug” by Americo Original”,
 A wonderful easy pattern to knit called. I promised Wendy at Unwind Yarn House that this one will be knit very fast for the “Knitters Frolic” that she was attending.  So over the next days I knit whenever I possible had a time free. Completed in 4 days and just in time for the show.
 With 4 skeins of “Americo Original 100% Pima Cotton”  (about 998 meters or 1092 yards) and needle Size 3mm this shrug looks perfect and stylish for this Spring, yet simple to knit….but lots or ribbing..
I normally would give myself more time to knit something….
 Then to my surprise I received a wonderful compliment from Anne the Designer of this shrug:  “Hello!! I saw your Atlas at the Knitters’ Frolic. I almost fell over when Wendy told me you knit it in just 4 days!! “ Anne, I definitely will look you up next time I am at Americo Original in Toronto too.

 “Atlas Shrug” von Americo Original

Eine wunderbares leichtes Muster zum Stricken.  Habe Wendy versprochen, dass ich dies sehr schnelle von den Nadeln stricken werde.  Für die “Knitters Frolic” Show in Toronto.  Also währent den nächsten Tagen wurde  gestricken, wann immer  ich etwas freie Zeit hatte.  Abgeschlossen in 4 Tagen und gerade fertig geworden  für die Show.
  Mit 4 Stränge “Americo Original 100% Pima Cotton” (ca. 998 Meter) und Nadelstärke 3mm dieses Bolero sieht perfekt und stilvoll  aus für diesen Frühling, auch einfach zu stricken …. aber viele Rippen …

Normalerweise würde ich auch mehr Zeit für so ein Projeckt nehmen ….

Dann aber zu meiner Überraschung erhielt ich ein wunderbares Kompliment von Anne, die Designerin von diesem Bolero:  “Hallo, ich sah Dein Atlas bei der “Knitters ‘Frolic” ich bin fast umgefallen, als Wendy mir erzählte,  Ich strickte es in nur 4 Tagen! ” .  Anne,  das nächste Mal wenn ich bin Americo Original in Toronto bin schau ich sicher bei Euch herein.

    1. Hi Sue
      This pattern is only available from Americo in Toronto. You need to buy yarn from them and they will give you the pattern then for free. I believe they will have an online order up soon too. You could also buy it from Unwind Yarn But again you would need to get yarn from that store too and then you get the pattern. I am not sure if Unwind Yarn House will do mail orders but you could ask…I am sorry but I am not able to give you this pattern as it is not free and I am knitting for Unwind Yarn House so they would not appreciate me doing this…hope you understand..
      Not sure where you are located but hope this will help you…


  2. Hi Sandy
