In ballet, entrechat describes a jump in which the dancer leaps straight upward, crossing his or her legs several times in the air. The cables in Entrechat are reminiscent of this beautiful movement, crossing and uncrossing from arm to arm. Knit flat in one piece and then seamed, this is an article that looks far more complicated and difficult than it actually is. Worked with chunky weight yarn, it knits up fast for a beautiful and sophisticated short winter coverup.
Small (28-34 inch bust), Medium (36-42 inch bust), Large (40-46 inch bust), Extra Large (46-52 inch bust)
Width at widest part of arm: 12”, 13.5”, 15.25”, 16.75”
There is some overlap between sizes. As the shrug does not actually cover the bust, the arm measurements may be more pertinent.
