Added to cart
The Virgo in Velvet Set is for all the vivacious go-getters who embody the vibrant energy of Virgo season! Perfect for the late summer/early fall when the weather has no idea what its doing and requires us to layer (which is honestly so rude), this set has you covered. The set consists of a turtleneck “armwarmer” shrug and a matching tube top.

This shrug is worked top down from the neck and each arm is worked separately in the round. The tube top is worked bottom up in the round. For the tube top, instructions are given for adjusting body length as well as options for waist shaping or not. This garment is knit with one strand of bulky velvet yarn.

Note: Yardage is given for velvet bulky yarn. If the velvet worming is an issue, here are some tips to help. You may use anything that will give you gauge, but be aware that combinations of wool yarn (ex. 2 strands DK) will likely result in smaller measurements and require more blocking.

See last photo for individual garment & total project yardage.
Note: If you plan on adding length to the body or sleeves, you should allow for additional yardage.
