Check out this free “Atlas Shrug” knitting pattern from Yarn Market by Sandi Prosser. I may not love Ayn Rand, but I do love the geometric windows created by this segmented design, knit sideways from cuff to cuff. [Thanks, Sarah!]

    i think this is a cute shrug and cast on as soon as i saw it, i would love a diagram of the cast on/pickup edges… will there be one made available or even a close up of the stitch pattern would be helpful.

    I love this shrug, but I don’t knit. Is there anyone out there who could translate this into crochet for me? Otherwise, a visual diagram would help me to figure out a crochet pattern. I just can’t visualize it based on the knitting instructions.
