Free Debbie Bliss shrug pattern

Add a splash of colour to your outfit day or night with this lovely light-weight shrug pattern from Debbie Bliss.

Debbie Bliss Rialto Lace

Debbie Bliss Rialto Lace has been cleverly spun from the finest Merino wool to create the softest yarn possible, carrying all the properties of sheepswool, without the itchiness!

With 28 shades to choose from, there is a colour for every season. This pattern uses Cyclamen 009, but why not try these pastel shades Heather (011) and Pool (022) perfect for the warmer weather or Fuchsia (007) for evening wear.

  3. Gale Rushworth says:

    Love the look of this pattern. Unfortunately I can’t get page 4 to print out. I’ve tried twice, once as a whole unit the next time as just page 4. Both times I just get dark 1/4 lines. Please help. Thanks, Gale

      Hi Gale,

      Have you managed to print it or are you still experiencing problems? We have tested printing and have found the best way to be the following:
      1. Click on the download image
      2. Right click and save as PDF file
      3. Open the file on your computer where you saved it with Adobe Reader
      4. Open print dialogue box and check the box marked ‘shrink oversized pages’.
      5. Select print.

      This should solve the issue!

      All the best,

      Jenni

    Thanks you this is beautiful. I am in Sri Lanka I don’t get the same type of wool or thread. But I use what is available but still it comes out well.

    • Jenni says:

      Hi Padma,

      You are most welcome! What kind of yarn do you use to make your projects? Will you be knitting this one? It’s great to hear from people across the globe!

      All the best,

  7. Beth Burch says:

    For those having printing problems, try clicking the “download” icon to the right of the “print” icon. When the dialog box pops us, select “Open with Adobe Reader”. From Adobe Reader you should have no problem saving the file or printing all or selected pages. I hope that helps!

  8. Jane G Getman says:

    Nope – didn’t help. Page 3 looks nothing like the download and page 4 is black lines.

    • Jenni says:

      Hi Jane,

      Thanks for your comment, what Beth has suggested is almost perfect, except you also need to make sure to click on ‘shrink oversized pages’ in the print dialogue box. This should help solve the issue and print out properly.

      Let me know if you need any more assistance!

      Best wishes,

      Jenni

  9. Carel says:

    I can’t even get as far as others had in downloading this pattern. Every time I click on the download link, I receive a message that tells me “this page cannot be displayed”. Hmmmm — problems with the technology at Loveknitting’s end?

    • Carly says:

      Hi Carel, I’ve just tested it and have been unable to recreate the issue. Maybe try right clicking “save link as” so the pdf saves on to your computer?

  10. Lynette Littlejohn says:
